This 2018 Paxton Tempranillo is another top-line example of McLaren Vale Tempranillo from the team at Paxton. Juicy and medium-bodied, this is utterly approachable while offering plenty of plum, cola, cherry flavours. Delicious drinking and super value at this great price.

"94/100. From organic and biodynamic vineyards, this is a gorgeous tempranillo that captures the variety to perfection. Juicy and fruity with lavish raspberry and spicy, savoury fruit in perfect balance with the oak which has just a little new. Gosh, this is great drinking"- Ray Jordan, The West Australian, 22 May 2019. 

"Paxton Wines have been producing an impressive selection from McLaren Vale in South Australia since 1979 and the wines are all organic and biodynamic. The Spanish grape variety tempranillo, originally from Rioja, has been a huge success story in Australia in recent years. This an aromatic and vibrant style, fruit-driven with just a hint of oak and a perfect partner for the Mediterranean dishes that are popular right now. $25." - Winsor Dobbin, Ciao Magazine, March 2019.
