NOW by PAXTON stands for NATURAL ORGANIC WINE.

The consumer market demand has been growing steadily for No Added Preservative and Natural wines. As leaders in organic production, it was obvious that Paxton needed a product for this category. In addition to Natural & Organic, we wanted to make a young, drink NOW style Rosé  that was different from our existing Rosé style.

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.

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 in stainless steel tanks. Post primary fermentation, the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation for stabilisation, prior to blending and bottling as soon as possible to preserve the beautiful flavours

Alcohol: 13.5%
Winemaker: Ashleigh Seymour

What will the 2022 vintage bring? 🧐

“Well, we've had quite unpredictable weather during flowering, a lot of rain and wind, so fruit set has not been the best in all of our vineyards. But that only means that crops will be a little lower than last year, so we might have to spend less energy on bunch thinning. The quality looks like it will be pretty good with beautiful green canopies that have only profited from the spring rains.
In Mclaren Vale, we have had a dry December - one of the driest on record, which has been conducive in eliminating any small amounts of mildew that had started in the rainy spring period.
Overall, everything is looking excellent out there, and I am looking forward to an exciting vintage and lots of new things to come at Paxton!”

Say hello to a man with two business hats. Garry Stillwell, the singer/guitarist has performed and shone for over 15 years. You can find him across the Southern Vales humming his sets while he moonlights (or daylights in his case) running his window-washing business!

Garry knows how to read a room and has amassed a following playing laidback acoustic to lively performances that will make you want to dance. You can expect classic renditions from the '60s through today with covers from The Beatles, Creedence, Cold Chisel, INXS, David Bowie, Coldplay and many more.

It's well worth catching Garry in the act as he leaves every atmosphere (and piece of glass) a little bit sparklier than he found it ✨

See you this Friday from 5pm!

Playing gigs in Mclaren Vale since he was 16 years old, Rhys Coventry is no stranger to the locals. His "acoustic chilled out folk" style only compliments his laid-back attitude. And as a local midcoast surfer, he knows how to keep a smile on his face when the weather gets stormy (back in November he happily played here in 20kph gusty winds!)

Rhys is now an established 21-year-old singer, songwriter and guitarist who plays his signature Coastal Folk tunes across the Fleurieu Peninsula. But as much as we love his music, his endearing nature has us booking him again and again!

Does this man look familiar? You might have seen Mason Lloyde as a contestant on The Voice Australia 2020!

And lucky for us, he is playing at Paxton this Sunday.

Born in Broken Hill, NSW, Mason is a self-taught guitarist. Initially inspired by Elvis Presley, he went on to unearth his unique sound and elegant yet powerful raspy vocals. With an impressive vocal range and oozing charisma, it's not just us who are big fans of his music!

Dying soil changed the course of Paxton Wines; here's how.

In the early 2000s, after nearly 20 years of grape farming, it was becoming apparent to David Paxton that the soil in his vineyards was slowly dying. He needed to find another way to farm to ensure soil & vineyard health for the future, so off he went to his first conference on biodynamics in Victoria. Intrigued by Rudolf Steiner and his Biodynamic principles, he thought, 'let's give this a go!' And give it a go, he did.
Returning to Mclaren Vale, David then converted 40+ acres at his newly acquired vineyard site, Quandong Farm. After the first vintage, David was so impressed by the quality of the fruit, moisture retention, and improved quality of the soil that he converted his entire estate, six vineyards across 200 acres to become fully biodynamic completed in 2011.

Today all Paxton Wines are 100% fully certified Organic and Biodynamic. David is still Paxton's head viticulturist, and he keeps a watchful eye on his vines as they continue to thrive.
