Paxton is a family owned and run McLaren Vale wine company; founder and owner, David Paxton, is one of Australia's most highly respected viticulturists; David's son Michael oversees the winemaking and second son, Ben, manages Cellar Door. Paxton vineyards are managed using biodynamic farming principles – farming without the use of synthetic fertilisers and pesticides with a focus on promoting
healthy, living soils through natural compost preparations. From vintage 2011 Paxton vineyards are NASAA certified organic/biodynamic and are the first Australian winery member of 1% For The Planet, a global network of environmentally conscious companies that give at least 1% of their annual sales to environmental causes.
"AAA is a vibrant blend of approximately 62% Shiraz and 38% Grenache from some special little pockets amongst our vineyards. The Shiraz was selected from the ‘Gateway' and ‘Jones Block’ vineyards, renowned for producing some of the best fruit in the region. These select parcels were blended with complimentary Grenache to create a wine that is engaging to a wide range of drinkers. Our blend is fun, appealing and, unlike some members of Paxton, not over the top."- Paxton Wines.
