At Paxton we like to cater for the different tastes of our visitors to Cellar Door. The Late Harvest was made with the aim to have a fruity, sweet but fresh drink to enjoy, that would appeal to those who like some sweetness in their wine. The wine has a floral tropical lift and is fresh and luscious with plenty of sweetness which is balanced by crisp lively acidity.

The Late Harvest blend changes each year with the aim of improving the wine; this year it was made from Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Marsanne. It is fruity, showing loads of tropical fruits including lychee, kiwi and passion fruit.

Colour: Bright crisp straw
Aroma: Fragrant lift of rose petal, strawberries and watermelon
Palate: Bright fruit driven palate with subtle plum, cherry and guava flavours followed by a zesty finish with balanced minerality
Cellaring:

A fruit driven wine designed for drinking young, although careful cellaring will be rewarded

Vintage:

2018 Growing season had very good winter rainfall allowing the vineyards to reach saturation point. A very dry spring encouraged healthy foliage growth and controlled the vines vigor well. We experienced one of the driest summers in 30 odd years; this meant a great concentration of flavours and intensity of fruit especially in Shiraz and Grenache. The whites reached fruit ripeness with low acidity therefore producing a very bright and vibrant flavour profile, especially in Pinot Gris and Chardonnay. A warmer than usual autumn (Indian summer) kept disease pressure low and helped natural malolactic fermentation. All and all, a very strong 2018 vintage with fantastic red wines maturing in barrel and vibrant white’s in bottle.
