The palate is enriched with characters of wild herbs, with a soft lengthy palate and a fine grained tannin structure. Enjoy a bottle now or cellar for up to six years. Only 550 cases of this wine were produced.
New Zealander still red wine from Central Otago New Zealand, made with Pinot Noir.
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.
