Located in the heart of the Hawkes Bay wine region of New Zealand, Paritua is a small boutique winery producing exceptional single varietal wines. The main range is under the Paritua label which is only produced in exceptional vintages. Stone Paddock by Paritua is produced every year using grapes grown on their own estate and from carefully selected vineyards.
The star of the Paritua range is the 2112 a classic blend of Bordeaux varietals Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc which exhibits all the elegance and style of its French origins, combined with the power and depth of fruit for which Hawkes Bay New Zealand is achieving global recognition.
A native of Hawkes Bay, Paritua’s Winemaker Jason Stent developed a natural interest in winemaking, growing up amongst an ever-expanding landscape of grapevines. After completing secondary school, a passion for cycling took him to the Bordeaux region in France. Jason spent nearly two years racing as an amateur cyclist and the time spent in France also sparked a passion for fine red wines, Rhone and Bordeaux varietals in particular.
Jason joined Paritua Vineyards as Winemaker in 2008 and is responsible for all activity in its new and developing winery. He also works closely with the vineyard and marketing teams and still finds time to pursue his interest in competitive cycling.
Brianne Fisher, the owner of Paritua, is in the UK in March to promote her wines. You can meet her and try the range on March 1st 2011 at the Paritua Wine Dinner at Barrels & Bottles.
