The Mediterranean climate of McLaren Vale where Paxton Vineyards is situated has always been an exceptional region in which to grow Shiraz grapes, with its warm summers, moderate winters and low humidity. Firmly committed to their biodynamic principles, Paxton produces wine only from their own vineyards and manages them all by promoting healthy, living soils without the use of synthetic fertilisers or pesticides. They have furthered this commitment by becoming a member of ‘1% for the planet’ – a global movement of companies who donate 1% of the value of their sales to a network of environmental organisations worldwide. With a style that is ready for drinking on release or can be exploited to its full ageing potential, their wines are packed with complexity and flavour, and have earned a 5 star rating from wine critic James Halliday.
A rich flavoursome palate of plums, chocolate, mint and savoury spices with firm tannins. Drinking well now and has great ageing potential for a further 10 years. Ideal with roast beef, or strong cheeses.
