Paxton Red Blend 2017



90 pts Wine Enthusiast –
Paxton’s wines seem to have a lighter touch these days, allowing their bio dynamically farmed fruit to shine. This blend of 60% Shiraz and 40% Grenache employs the use of whole bunch fermentation to brighten and beautify. A fragrant and downright pretty wine, it bounds and bounces with fleshy red berries, florals, toasty spices and that cinnamon, stalky whole bunch goodness. Medium in weight with supple tannins, this is a wine to drink young and even slightly chilled.<br>
90 pts James Suckling –
This is always a reliable blend that delivers such attractive and ripe red plums and raspberries with a smooth, sleek and subtly nuanced palate. Versatile, tasty and approachable. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink now. Screw cap.

Winemaker Notes

Bright purple in color, with a touch of red, this wine offers a floral perfume of cherries, Turkish delight and raspberries. The palate is bright and fruit-driven up front, then soft and silky on the mid palate, offering notes of raspberries, cinnamon, licorice, Turkish delight and nutmeg. Medium-bodied with luscious tannins.
