Wonderfully full of flavours of dark, fleshy fruits with a hint of vanilla and chocolate. Perfectly balanced flavours that give the wine a fantastic finish.
Awards and Accolades
2014 Vintage: 94 Points, Special Value Wine - James Halliday, The Wine Companion "Bold flavours of blackcurrant, violet and smoky/cedary oak - with a slip of game - make for both satisfying and complex drinking"
2014 Vintage: 92 Points - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front "Fresh, rosy style, more modern in its delivery of the grape. Light herbal notes, mixed berries, freshness and plump but grainy tannin, vibrant and balanced, with a good finish. Amaro herb twang in the aftertaste. Good to drink."
From the Winery
When viticulture and winemaking work in synchronicity, the end result is naturally elegant wine. At Paxton we grow grapes and make wines that radiate purity, vitality and elegance. David Paxton and Richard Freebairn have combined their decades of experience and embraced Biodynamic and Organic practices to produce the healthiest vines and highest quality wines. Biodynamics is the most advanced form of organic farming. We use natural preparations and composts to bring the soil and vines into balance, resulting in wines that truly showcase and preserve the unique vineyards of McLaren Vale.
