PARITUA, 2018 21.12, Hawkes Bay
This is a truly beautiful wine. 21.12 – Is Paritua’s Flagship Wine, made in only the very best of vintages.
A complex aroma of blackberry, black currant, black Doris plum and cocoa powder with floral hints of violet and spicy notes of cardamom, anise and clove. The palate has great structure and intensity of flavour. A silky textured attack with plush, concentrated blackberry and firm mid palate tannin. Ripe Black Doris plum, cocoa and spice flavours with a hint of petrichor minerality and a long savoury fine grained tannin finish. The wine has fine cellaring potential.
Recommended drinking from 2021 till 2036.
Enjoy with red meats, hearty roasted game, and rich mushroom dishes.
