Paritua Stone Paddock Merlot 2020, Hawke’s Bay

Merlot from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 19-Apr-2023
Full, dark ruby-red, even colour throughout. The nose is rich with a concentrated bouquet penetrating dark plum, blackberry, tobacco, cloves and nutmeg. Full-bodied, dark plum and blackberry aromas form a ripe core, unfolding clove, nutmeg, tobacco and a hint of herb. The palate shows good weight with rich fruit and ripe tannins, weaving a structured framework reflecting spice and tobacco details. This is a well-made Merlot with a black fruit core with richness and accessibility. Match with beef steak and ribs over the next 3-5 years. 14% alc. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Apr 2023 RRP $24.99
