2016 Stone Paddock Scarlet, Hawkes Bay
This blended red is a prime example of the style produced from the stony gravel soils of the Paritua Vineyard.
In Appearance: Full, dark, black-hued purple-red colour, youthful in appearance.
On the Nose: Highly scented Black Doris plum, blackberry and black currant aroma’s with hints of baking spice, cedar and fine spicy oak.
On the Palate: Dark fruits dominated by plum and blackberry with a rich full mid palate supported by firm, ripe tannins and a long, sumptuous finish. Subtle oak influence provides spicy notes and added structure.
