Paxton MV Shiraz is a blend of Shiraz from four of the Paxton vineyards and has been developed to highlight the best fruit flavours.
Fragrant, dark fruit and chocolate, with oak under-tones, rich, juicy fresh fruit with hints of licorice, chocolate and a thread of vanillin oak. Mouth filling and lingering, with elegant flavours.
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.
From vintage 2010 Paxton vineyards are NASAA certified “organic/biodynamic in conversion” and are the first Australian winery member of 1% For The Planet, a global network of environmentally conscious companies that give at least 1% of their annual sales to environmental causes.
