Paritua Red Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Franc 2018

FIVE STARS 95/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
93/100 | Cameron Douglas MS


This is a densely framed, tour de force blend of Merlot, Cabernet and Cabernet Franc from winemaker Jason Stent and his Paritua team. What a beauty; a true representation of the Bordeaux-esque qualities of fine Hawke's Bay red wine that is laden with flavours of dark blackberry fruits and cedar wood complexity. By world standards this wine is an unadulterated bargain. Buy with our highest recommendation.

Tasting Notes

Cameron Douglas MS writes "A blend of 58% Merlot, 26% Cabernet Sauvignon and 16% Cabernet Franc. The bouquet is packed with aromas of dark berries bitter chocolate, plums and violets, smoky oak with clove and dark vanilla. Very youthful showing off complexity and intensity. On the palate - concentrated, fruity, oaky and intense. There’s no mistaking the tannins with their grainy mix of oak and fruit origins. There’s also plenty of acidity contrasting the ripe core of fruit reminding me of the plums and dark berries then chocolate toasty wood layers. A lovely wine, very young and lengthy."

Sam Kim writes "It's gorgeously composed and expressed, showing dark fruit richness with cocoa, smoked game, anise and cedar characters on the nose. The palate is equally impressive with outstanding weight and concentration, wonderfully enhanced by multi-layered mouthfeel and silky tannins."

The winery writes "A deep ruby red colour with aromas of spicy black Doris plum and wild forest berries with fine cedar notes, vanilla, baking spices and cocoa powder. The palate is firm and rich, with powerful mid palate tannins and concentrated black plum, cassis and blackberry. The wine will improve with cellaring. Recommended drinking from mid-2020 to 2030. Red meats and game birds are the obvious choice to match with this wine."
