Paritua Syrah 2018

Paritua Syrah 2018

  • Syrah
  • New Zealand, 750ml

A lush aroma of black plum, blackberry and fragrant blueberry with hints of black pepper, cola bean and 5 spice underline the complex bouquet. This is a beautifully balanced wine with Black Doris plum, blackberry and sweet prune supported by a silky textured palate with firm but fine-grained tannins and a hint of oak giving this Syrah great structure and length.

Estate grown at the Paritua Vineyard on Maraekakaho Road. The vines are managed to crop light and have good fruit exposure. Fruit thinning takes place to one bunch per cane to maximise ripening potential. Harvest is all by hand once the grapes have achieved physiological ripeness.

"At Paritua we appreciate that truly great wine speaks of the land in which it was born.

Our vineyard is in the heart of the acclaimed Bridge Pa Triangle wine region of Hawke’s Bay, on New Zealand’s North Island. The site is all gravel soils and gentle contours, surrounded by hills and blessed with long, lingering summers and clear, crisp winters... exceptional conditions to create exceptional wines.

The name Paritua is a tribute to the Paritua Stream, which meanders gently through the vineyard. Paritua means the meandering stream above the ancient river. The vineyard is planted over the historical riverbed of the nearby Ngaruroro River which flowed through pre the 1860s earthquake. It is a name that also acknowledges the connection with the land and the people of New Zealand.“

Paritua is a Hawke’s Bay winery that has steadily grown in stature over the past decade and certainly has a place on my watch list of rising stars.” Bob Campbell MW March 2020.

Wines bearing our boutique label Paritua are produced only in outstanding vintages, whilst our Stone Paddock selection of wines are made every year. Every bottle of Paritua wine comes from grapes grown on this special, single vineyard, organically farmed site.

We invite you to experience our Paritua and Stone Paddock wines - wines that not only reflect a distinctly New Zealand style, but also our passion for quality winemaking."
