STONE PADDOCK SCARLET 2013 is available to buy in increments of 1
73.5% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc, 7.5% Cabernet Sauvignon & 5% Malbec
From one of the greatest Hawkes Bay vintages on record and now with five years of age this red 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, August 2017 (2013 Vintage)
"Impressively fruited and complex, the inviting bouquet shows blackcurrant, smoked game, black olive, cedar and spice aromas. The palate is equally attractive and satisfying with delectable fruit flavours combined with soothing savoury undertones. Flavoursome, generous and very tasty. 2013 Scarlet is a blend of merlot, cabernet franc and cabernet sauvignon. At its best: now to 2019."
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."
4 Stars & 17.5/20 Raymond Chan, July 2017 (2013 Vintage)
"Full, deep, dark ruby-red colour with black-red hues, a little lighter edged. The nose is elegant in proportion with a fine heart of blackcurrant and redcurrant fruit along with dark plums and dark herbs, plus a little cassis. The fruit has an attractive fragrance. Medium-full bodied, the palate is elegantly presented with good depth and intensity of black and redcurrant fruit with black plum flavours. Dark herbal notes and cassis add detail, and the fruit shows with freshness and clarity. The mouthfeel features fine-grained tannin grip and structure, with fresh acidity lending vibrancy and energy. The wine flows with good drive to an elegant, lingering finish of currants and herbs. This is an elegant, finely concentrated Merlot blend with currant and plum flavours, along with herb notes on a fresh palate. Match with herb-marinated lamb and beef dishes, and Mediterranean fare over the next + years. A blend of 73.5% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc, 7.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Malbec, fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged up to 14 months in seasoned oak. 17.5/20"  Jul 2017 
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."
