PARITUA, 2018 Red, Hawkes Bay
Paritua RED – Our finest Merlot dominant blend with Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon
A deep ruby red colour with aromas of spicy black Doris plum and wild forest berries with fine cedar notes, vanilla, baking spices and cocoa powder. The palate is firm and rich, with powerful mid palate tannins and concentrated black plum, cassis and blackberry.
The wine will improve with cellaring. Recommended drinking from mid-2020 to 2030. Red meats and game birds are the obvious choice to match with this wine.
Merlot 58%, Cabernet Sauvignon 26%, Cabernet Franc 16%
