Paxton The Guesser Cabernet Shiraz 2011

McLaren Vale, South Australia   |    750ml   |    14%
Paxton's The Guesser is named in recognition of David Paxton's days working in shearing sheds in country Australia. The Guesser's job is to sort, clean & class the fleece of each shorn sheep. Also works in quite well with the history of Paxton's cellar door location Landcross Farm, which was previously an old sheep farm.

The "Great Australian Blend" Cabernet Sauvignon 52% & Shiraz 48%, Paxton's 'The Guesser' is a great value wine that is sure to attract plenty of attention. Reviews of the 2010 vintage below;

"92 Points. A 52/58% blend; it has abundant black fruits, licorice and bitter dark chocolate on the bouquet and medium-to full-bodied palate, and a long life ahead for those who are patient. Screwcap. 14%. To 2025" - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2014 Edition.

"Different batches of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz were fermented and aged separately in small French and American oak barriques. They were blended to achieve our example of the “Great Australian Blend” with full fruit expression from both the varieties and structure specifically from the Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine was bottled after 15 months maturation." - Paxton Wines.
