NOW by PAXTON stands for NATURAL ORGANIC WINE. The consumer market demand has been growing steadily for Preservative Free/Natural wines. As leaders in organic production, it was obvious that Paxton needed a product for this category. In addition to Natural, PF & Organic, we wanted to make a young, drink NOW style Rosè  that was different from our existing Rosè style.

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:

Hand picked and selector harvested once the grapes have reached optimum flavor development. Whole berry pressed, cold settled then the clear juice is racked off solids and fermented between 13-15oc. Post primary fermentation, the wine undergoes secondary fermentation (malolactic fermentation), prior to blending and bottling.

Alcohol: 12.5%
Total SO2: <5ppm
Winemaker: Dwayne Cunningham and Kate Goodman
