“Succulent and wonderfully weighted”

In stock


56% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Malbec & 10% Cabernet Franc

We featured this Merlot based blend last year after a change of distribution brought about a fairly dramatic price drop. The new price certainly spiked plenty of interest and it proved very popular. We are very pleased to be able to offer you the 2014 vintage at the same reduced price.

From a great Hawkes Bay vintage, and now with five years of age, this is drinking beautifully with plentiful fruit giving way to a more savoury and complex side. The tannins have softened nicely giving lovely roundness to the long finish. 

5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, March 2019 (2014 Vintage)
"A gorgeous Bordeaux-style (merlot, cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, malbec), the fragrant bouquet shows blackcurrant, dried cherry, smoked game, cigar and cocoa characters. The palate is succulent and wonderfully weighted, delivering excellent fruit power backed by fine-grained tannins, offering lovely structure and length. At its best: now to 2020."

Reviews for the 2013 vintage below…

4 Stars Michael Cooper (2013 Vintage)
"From Paritua, the 2013 vintage is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, matured for a year in seasoned oak barrels. Deep and youthful in colour, it is an age-worthy, full-bodied, generous red, with strong, ripe plum, spice and blackcurrant flavours, showing some nutty complexity. Drink now or cellar."

92/100 Bob Campbell MW, November 2015 (2013 Vintage)
"A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. Bright, fresh and flavoursome red with dark berry, plum, vanilla, spice, anise and subtle nutty oak flavours. Deliciously approachable wine at a price that offers good value. Drink 2015 to 2019."
