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 Chardonnay andPinot Gris. It is fruity, showing loads of tropical fruits including lychee, kiwi and passion fruit.

Vintage:

2021 was one of those dream vintages that don’t come along every year; cool, refreshing nights and dreamy, sun-kissed days without any extended stretches of intense heat. After a warmer than usual November there were only four days above 40 degrees. It was mainly dry throughout the ripening season with the odd spattering of just enough rain to keep the grapes beautifully plump, juicy and full of bright fruit flavours and time to dry out in between so disease pressure was low. The gentle undulation between these varying temperatures and perfectly healthy canopies allowed us to really ponder picking times, spending plenty of time out in the vineyard tasting grapes getting the timing of picking just right. The generous harvest has rewarded us with delightfully delicate fruit and varietal characters, with each variety singing its own tune. Natural acids are in perfect balance and the smooth, sensuous tannins completed by an epic energetic vibration that we can’t wait to share with you.
