Description

Paritua is one of Hawke’s Bay's top producers and this Chardonnay highlights their attention to detail both in the vineyard and winery. Extremely low-yielding vines are constantly ‘manicured’ over the season to ensure intensely concentrated grapes are picked at their optimum ripeness. Handpicked bunches are placed in a cool room overnight, pressed slowly and gently the next day and where the free-run juice is put straight to barrel for fermentation. Now labelled Willow but rest assured nothing has changed, in fact this Chardonnay is possibly their best to date.

Smells

a gorgeous nose of warm yellow fruits, warm hay with citrus peel, candied peel, orange blossom with layers of buttered sourdough, a touch of gunflint, vanilla toasty oak, and spice.

Tastes

rich, creamy mid-palate but a wine with energy, drive, and precision. Superb acid that harnesses the fruit within a salivating grapefruit pith character extending throughout the long, firm G&T-like finish. Lovely white stone fruit, nectarines interwoven with green melon and pear flavours. Judicious oak handling, in a style of its own within the realm of Hawkes Bay. A very well-handled, stylish wine. Drinking well now but no rush as will age 6-8 years+ in a temperature-controlled cellar.
