Tasting Notes

Oscillating between ripe blackberries stolen from your neighbour's back fence and wild fennel seeds harvested along a country roadside this wine keeps you intrigued waiting for further revelations like cocoa and star anise. A medium to full-bodied wine with fresh mulberries on the palate entrance. The texture feels like floating over rolling hills in a smooth convertible, opening up like a view over an expansive valley at the crest of the last hill. Elongated by careful maturation in French oak barriques, the finish is like watching a glowing sunset at the end of an action-packed day.

During fermentation, each parcel was plunged and pumped over twice a day for 2 weeks, to extract flavour, colour and tannin compounds. The ferments were then pressed to a combination of new and mature French oak barriques (225 L) and puncheons (500 L), where they were nurtured for 12 months prior to blending and bottling.

The Real Review - Stuart Knox

A deep purple throughout the glass. Plums, bitter wood herbs and iodine aromas. Medium-weight but great fruit intensity. The tannins are bold but resolve well within the flow and step up to another level to dry the finish. A lot of wine for the price and drinking very well right now

Paxton

Paxton is at the forefront of organic and biodynamic practices in viticulture and winemaking. All their wines originate from their estate vineyards in South Australia's McLaren Vale. Founded in 1979, it's a family-owned business. David Paxton, the founder and owner, is a highly respected viticulturalist in Australia, with over 30 years of experience in cultivating top-quality wine grapes. For three decades, the Paxton family has nurtured their vineyards in McLaren Vale, an internationally acclaimed wine region known for its superb premium wines, especially reds. In 2000, they introduced their first PAXTON-labeled wine, the 1998 Paxton Shiraz. Today, with guidance from consultant winemaker Kate Goodman and winemaker Ashleigh Seymour, Paxton produces an array of estate-grown wines that represent McLaren Vale's fruit quality, natural diversity, and varietal expression. They adopt minimal intervention winemaking to preserve the fruit's integrity. In 2005, they opened their cellar door at Landcross Farm, a historic sheep farm from the 1860s and the original village site, now open daily for tastings, events, and functions.
