2018 Paritua 21.12, Hawkes Bay

Paritua’s Flagship Wine, made in only the very best of vintages. A Cabernet Sauvignon dominant blend with Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Cabernet Sauvignon 65% · Merlot 20% · Cabernet Franc 15% Alcohol: 14.5%

A complex aroma of blackberry, black currant, black Doris plum and cocoa powder with floral hints of violet and spicy notes of cardamom, anise and clove. The palate has great structure and intensity of flavour. A silky textured attack with plush, concentrated blackberry and firm mid palate tannin. Ripe Black Doris plum, cocoa and spice flavours with a hint of petrichor minerality and a long savoury fine grained tannin finish. The
wine has fine cellaring potential.

Recommended drinking from 2021 till 2036.

Enjoy with red meats, hearty roasted game, and rich mushroom dishes.
