"93 Points. Parcels from two vineyards were separately fermented and held on skins for 14 days prior to 12 months in new and used barriques. Has far greater depth and richness to its full-bodied black fruit flavours than most of its price peers, with savoury, earthy dark chocolate invisibly woven into the fruit. Will go the distance and some. 14.5% alc. To 2034" - James Halliday, Halliday Wine Magazine, December 2015.

"McLaren Vale shiraz, biodynamically/organically grown. The 2013 tended to polarise opinions. This release is far more straight-forward. It’s a soft, sweet-fruited, chug-a-lug style but with more weight and concentration than those words usually imply. Blackberry jam, licorice, a touch of burnt sugar and fragrant dried herbs. Mellifluous. Has a puppy-dog readiness to be enjoyed now. Rated: 90 Points Tasted: Jul15 Alcohol: 14.5% Price: $20 Closure: Screwcap Drink: 2015 - 2020" - 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. The 2014 Paxton MV Shiraz was oak matured for an average of 12 months in a mix of new and old French and American oak" - Paxton Wines.
