2021 Paxton AAA Shiraz Grenache McLaren Vale – Paxton are leaders in both organic and biodynamic viticulture and winemaking. Fruit for all wines are sourced solely from estate vineyards in McLaren Vale, South Australia.
The AAA on the label pays homage to David’s days in the wool trade and was stamped on the best grades of wool by the Guesser. It is a vibrant blend of Shiraz, Grenache and Mataro from some special little pockets amongst our vineyards. The Shiraz was selected from the ‘Gateway’ and ‘Jones Block’ vineyards, renowned for producing some of the best fruit in the region. These select parcels were blended with complimentary Grenache to create a wine that is engaging to a wide range of drinkers. Our blend is fun, appealing and, unlike some members of Paxton, not over the top.
Think wild red forest fruits like strawberries and barberries piled high on a creamy, crunchy pavlova. In the background, notes of raspberry leaf tea hint to the partial whole bunches used in the fermentation and completed by a feather-light touch of delicate French oak.
Shiraz and Grenache together makes for such a dynamic blend and decadent mouthfeel. Shiraz bringing the mid palate weight and intensity of fruit flavours, while the spicy liveliness of Grenache pulls everything together for a party on your palate. The finish is just like ending your night with smooth Jazz.
The AAA is a fantastic wine when young, with potential to get even better in bottle over 10 years plus.
