Paritua 2016 Stone Paddock Scarlett Red (Hawke's Bay)

Editors' Choice

This Hawkes Bay Bordeaux-style blend, dominated by Merlot and Cabernet Franc, opens energetically. Lively ripe berries spill from the glass, backed by sappy, savory nuances: olives, tree sap and scrubby herbs. The oak is neatly tucked away. There's muscle to the palate but a lovely lift of acidity that adds purity to the tangy red currant fruit. Taut, textural tannins add layer in a wine that is straightforward yet harmonious. Drink now with charcuterie or until 2028. Christina Pickard
