New Zealander still white wine from Hawkes Bay New Zealand, made with Chardonnay.
Paritua Vineyards is anchored firmly in the heart of North Island’s Hawkes Bay region. The fruit used by Paritua is sourced from the stony soils that are typical in this area, Pinot Noir being the exception in that it is brought up from South Island’s Central Otago. Wines bearing the boutique Paritua label are produced only in outstanding years whilst the Stone Paddock selection is made every year using either fruit grown on their own estate or from carefully selected regional vineyards. So good are their wines that it is hard to believe that the first vines arrived here only in 2003.
