Tasting Notes

NOW stands for 'Natural Organic Wine' with no added preservatives. A surprisingly complex flavour explosion of earthy ironstone and cold-smoked charcuterie layered on undertones of plump raspberries. As the wine has more time in the glass blueberries and bubble-gum come to the surface balanced by subtle flints of fresh marjoram. Medium bodied, juicy, easy, drink “NOW’ style of wine. Reminiscent of swimming in natural hot springs on a fresh autumn morning, the comforting feel of warm water washing over your skin. The ferrous character comes through on the palate leading into slightly gravelly tannins offset by a delicate acidity lengthening the palate to a smooth finish.

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.
