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.
"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 2016 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.
