2015 Paxton Wines "AAA" Shiraz Grenache McLaren Vale South Australia (Biodynamic)

SKU #1327890 96 points James Halliday

 A 65/35% blend, matured in French barriques. A shiraz grenache that only McLaren Vale can provide: complex, rich and layered, black and red fruits providing a mosaic of flavours on the medium+-bodied palate. The tannin and oak management can't be faulted - it's a lovely wine at a bargain basement price.

K&L Notes

A pretty perfume of raspberries & mulberries with a hint of pomegranate and tarragon. The palate delivers bright red berry fruits with a soft and silky mid-palate and finishes with elegant & juicy tannins. Made with organic grapes. Certified Biodynamic.

- While it is true that the greatest strides in Australian winemaking have come in the last 30 years or so, commercial viticulture began as early as the 1820s and has developed uninterrupted ever since. The majority of the great wine regions are in the southeastern area of the continent, including Barossa Valley, Clare Valley, McLaren Vale, and Coonawarra in South Australia; Yarra Yarra Valley and Pyrenees in Victoria; and the Upper and Lower Hunter Valleys in New South Wales. Many of the wines from Southeastern Australia are based on Shiraz or Cabernet Sauvignon and various blends including Grenache and Mourvedre. In Western Australia, along the Margaret River, great strides are being made with Pinot Noir as well as Bordeaux-styled reds. There are also many world-class releases of Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc from the land Down Under, where Riesling also enjoys international acclaim. While many equate Aussie wines with “value,” there are more than a few extremely rare and pricey options, which never fail to earn the highest ratings from wine publications and critics throughout the world.
