      Paxton AAA McLaren Vale Shiraz Grenache 2016 

      Grenache used to be blended out with Shiraz; now it is the other way around. You can find Shiraz and Grenache in small amounts as it is not that common, but when you find a great one you will certainly be a convert of this coveted blend.

      Paxton AAA Shiraz Grenache is certified organic and biodynamic - what does that mean? It is a holistic view of viticulture management, a balance between vine, man earth and stars. It predates organic farming by about 20 years. Paxton uses natural soil preparations and compost to bring the soil and vines into balance.

      The 2016 vintage was one of the coolest, driest and earliest vintages on record in the McLaren Vale and the wines from McLaren are showcasing exceptionally well with varietal expression, colour and flavour.

      With Shiraz making up 65% and the remainder being Grenache the wine delivers an aromatic sensory load full of red and dark berries, intoxicating one might say just with the smell alone. Balanced out perfectly in the mouth the blend comes into a harmonic state as it populates through the entirety of the mouth with a seamless display of fruit and subtle oak integration.
