"Biodynamically-grown shiraz from McLaren Vale. Small proportion of whole bunches. Grapes come from four separate vineyards. Spends extended time on skins and is matured in both French and American oak. Excellent release. Tasty plus. Plums and blackberries, hay and sweet, roasted, milky coffee. Tannin through the finish is a case of Not Too Much, Not Too Little. Crowd-pleasing style but quality in its own right. Price isn’t bad either. Rated: 92 Points Alcohol: 14% Price: $20" - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front.

"Numerous individual parcels from each vineyard were blended. The majority were de-stemmed with a portion of whole bunches in some batches. They were then transferred to individual open fermenters, where a regime of pumping over plunging and rack and returns was undertaken. After fermentation, the wine remained on skins until it had developed the complexity required. It was oak matured for an average of 12 months in a mix of new and old French and American oak" - Paxton Wines.
