Paritua 2020 Red Hawkes Bay New Zealand


Winemakers Notes

Whole bunches are destemmed and pass through our optical grape sorting machine and then crushed to a closed fermenter. After a period of cold soak we inoculate with a preferred yeast. Temperatures are then managed to reach about 30°C.

Malo-lactic conversion takes place during maceration in tank which can take up to 35 days.

We aim for about 40% new French oak barriques, elevage in barrels can take up to 18 months with final barrel selection and blending prior to bottling. This wine was bottled without fining after a light filtration.


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.


Merlot 58%· Cabernet Sauvignon 26%· Cabernet Franc 16%.
Alcohol: 14.5%
