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 approximately 60% Shiraz and 40% Grenache 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.

Variety: Shiraz (60) Grenache (40%)
100%: Organic | Biodynamic
Region: McLaren Vale
Colour: Bright crimson red with a pink hue
Aroma: Delightful flavours of strawberries, raspberries and a hint of blueberries. The red fruit aromatics are jumping out of the glass, with a slight hint of whole bunch character that is supported by subtle but delicious French oak notes
Palate: The blend of Shiraz and Grenache makes for such a bright and delicious mouthfeel. Shiraz bringing the mid palate weight and intensity of flavours, whilst Grenache gives some crunchy texture and mouthfeel. Combined gives an elegant round finish that really feels like it dances on the palate. Delicious!
Drink With: Enjoy with your favourite pork dish
Cellaring:

The AAA is a fantastic wine when young, with potential to get even better in bottle over 10 years plus.

Vintage:

2019 Vintage was one of the harder vintages we have experienced in many years. Below average rainfall over spring and virtually no rain during summer saw a heavy reliance on irrigation. This together with a severe hail storm in November, the hottest day in South Australia since 2009 and regular maximum temperatures over 36 degree Celsius in February made for some challenges. However, our close proximity to the St Vincent Gulf did help moderate some extreme weather events. All in all we saw smaller tonnages with more intense flavour in the fruit due to very little water content in the grapes. Another consistent year for Pinot Gris and Grenache, with early signs the Shiraz will carry great density of fruit flavours.

Vinification:

Individual vineyard parcels of Shiraz and Grenache were selected when they reached optimum sugar and flavour equilibrium. The parcels were kept separate throughout picking, de-stemming and fermenting, enhancing the unique characters of each vineyard. Fermentation was carried out in open top and static fermenters. During this process, each parcel was plunged and/or pumped over twice a day for 14 days, to extract colour, flavour and tannin structure. The ferments were pressed to seasoned French and Hungarian oak barriques, where they were nurtured for 12 months prior to blending and bottling.

Pinot Gris is a white wine as we know but the grapes, Gris meaning Grey, look more like a red wine on the vine. Our Thomas Block vineyard is where we grow our beloved Paxton Pinot Gris. #vintage21 #organicwine #biodynamicwine #mclarenvale #pinotgris ...

The wine that started it all. The 1998 Paxton Shiraz from our Jones Block vineyard and released in 2000. It’s still tasting a charm, and has aged gracefully.
