Paritua Vineyards and Winery

Paritua 21.12 Twenty One Twelve 2015 Hawke’s Bay

From Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc - a bouquet of complexity, depth and concentration. No mistaking the core of fruit, no mistaking the impact of new oak. Blackberry, roasted plum, vanilla, clove and toasted wood aromas. Intense on the palate with flavours that reflect the nose - dark berries and baking spices, violets and dark roses, black berry fruits and milk chocolate moments. Firm youthful tannins and acidity to match. Long complex finish. A wine for the cellar or decant for service. Best from late 2020 through 2030+. A fine wine.
