2022 Paxton Tempranillo 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 2007 Tempranillo was the first release of this single vineyard wine, with only 100 dozen cases made. They’ve been trialling a number of different grape varieties that perform well in warmer climates and use less water. At this stage, Tempranillo shows great promise for the region. Being a lighter style the wine is approachable and soft with attractive aromatics.
Jujubes, fat, juicy red cherries and star anise, transport you to a seaside produce market on the Costa del Sol. Like wandering through a stone archway into an exquisite orchard, this Tempranillo has an enveloping mouthfeel finishing with the softness of the clouds passing overhead.
Drink with tapas, roasted vegetables and Mexican food such as nachos, burritos and any dish with corn as a major ingredient.
