Paxton’s vineyards comprise of six Biodynamic properties. MV ‘McLaren Vale’ or ‘Multiple Vineyard’ Shiraz is a blend of 100% Shiraz from four of the Paxton vineyards, and has been developed to highlight optimum fruit flavours.

The MV displays the hallmarks of classic McLaren Vale Shiraz – elegance, balance and pleasure in a bottle. This wine gives the best of both worlds: a fantastic wine when young, but careful cellaring for 10-15 years will reward you very nicely.

It's immediately appealing on the nose showing perfumed aromas of dark berry and floral with nuances of warm spice and roasted nuts. The succulent palate is smooth and fleshy with youthful charm and flow, making it delectably drinkable. At its best: now to 2028.

A deep purple throughout the glass. Plums, bitter wood herbs and iodine aromas. Medium-weight but great fruit intensity. The tannins are bold but resolve well within the flow and step up to another level to dry the finish. A lot of wine for the price and drinking

Stuart Knox, 2021

Variety: 100% Shiraz
100%: Organic | Biodynamic
Region: McLaren Vale
Vineyard: Multiple Vineyards
Colour: Bright purple with red hues
Aroma: Oscillating between ripe blackberries stolen from your neighbour’s back fence and wild fennel seeds harvested along a country roadside this wine keeps you intrigued waiting for further revelations like cocoa and star anise
Palate: A medium to full-bodied wine with fresh mulberries on the palate entrance. The texture feels like floating over rolling hills in a smooth convertible, opening up like a view over an expansive valley at the crest of the last hill. Elongated by careful maturation in French oak barriques, the finish is like watching a glowing sunset at the end of an action-packed day
Drink With: Barbecued anything or Veal Schnitzel
Cellaring:

This wine gives the best of both worlds: a fantastic wine when young, however careful cellaring for 10 – 15 years will be rewarded

Vintage:

2020 posed many challenges throughout Australia. Another intense drought year through the growing season was followed by one of the most devastating bushfire seasons this country has ever seen. Fortunately McLaren Vale was largely unaffected by this devastation and the early signs indicate 2020 to be a very special vintage; one to savour. Moderate weather throughout the picking season, combined with lower yields allowed the flavours to develop harmoniously and in balance. Varietal expression was excellent with Shiraz and Grenache showing lovely intense flavour without excessive tannin or alcohol. Tempranillo and Graciano are showing lovely plum and pepper characters and will be intriguing to see how they develop after time in oak and bottle

Vinification:

Individual parcels from each vineyard were picked at optimum sugar, acid and flavour balance. These parcels remained separate throughout vinification and blended prior to bottling. Fermentation began after gently de-stemming the fruit into both open and static fermenters. During fermentation, each parcel was plunged and pumped over twice a day for 2 weeks, to extract flavour, colour and tannin compounds. The ferments were then pressed to a combination of new and mature French oak barriques (225 L) and puncheons (500 L), where they were nurtured for 12 months prior to blending and bottling.

Alcohol: 14.0%
