Stone Paddock 2015 Hawke’s Bay Merlot and Syrah


Paritua Vineyards on Maraekakaho Road near Hastings is showing its potential and beginning to spread its wings, with intentions to grow its domestic presence as well as the U.S. market. This follows successful exports especially to China, since the company was purchased by a syndicate of N.Z. Chinese in 2011. The quality of the top Paritua wines made by Jason Stent has been very high, and now the secondary ‘Stone Paddock’ wines are showing greater consistency in style, with clearer varietal and regional expression, and of course, a step forwards in quality. Here, I review the new release 2015 Stone Paddock Merlot and Syrah.
