Paxton The Guesser Shiraz Cabernet

Paxton The Guesser Red 2014

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 2014 Paxton The Guesser Red is a blend of 37% Shiraz, 32% Tempranillo, 31% Cabernet Sauvignon that again offer the fantastic value drinking that has made this such a popular wine. Fruit driven with hints of mint, spice and plums on the nose, the palate is soft and subtle, packed full of flavour and fruit. An easy drinking McLaren Vale red that is ideal for a range of occasions.

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.
