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.
VINTAGE: 2013 harvest was characterised by small crops of early ripening, full flavoured fruit.
One of our earliest harvests in recent times, 2013 was fantastic due to great natural balance and ripeness at relatively low sugar levels.
VINIFICATION: Selected batches of Shiraz, Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon were fermented and aged separately in small French and American oak barriques. They were blended to achieve a fruit-filled wine, expressing a nose of Cabernet Sauvignon, mid palate of Shiraz and finish of Tempranillo.
