Tasting Notes

Fresh citrus flavours of lime and lemon myrtle with a hint of pear blossom and canary melon. Salty beach days come to mind, sand-covered skin and cricket being played with the waves lapping at sun-kissed feet. A zesty palate reminiscent of grapefruit sorbet framing a soft viscosity through the mid-palate. Grapefruit comes to play again with rind texture completing the lively 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.
