2017 Paxton "NOW" No Sulfites Added Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia

SKU #1336790 93 points Sam Kim

Outer quote mark This is an intensely coloured and richly fruited Shiraz made using organic grapes with no preservatives. It is gorgeously fragrant on the nose showing blackberry, plum jelly, dark chocolate, hazelnut and floral aromas, followed by a concentrated palate that is dense and delectable. At its best: now to 2020. Inner quote mark (3/2018)

90 points James Halliday

Outer quote mark Made without the use of SO2, nor oak. Red wines that don't use oak and are screwcapped change the game for such wines. They aren't designed for cellaring, but it's no drama if you keep them for 2+ years, and this wine falls fairly and squarely in that category. Inner quote mark (8/2019)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2017 NOW by Paxton Shiraz (NOW = Natural Organic Wine) includes no added preservatives. It would be a fantastic choice for anyone interested in seeing how no-sulfur-added wines differ from conventional counterparts. The blackberry and black olive fruit speak louder and clearer, in this taster's opinion, but there's also a dusty, earthy note that's not as attractive. The wine is medium-bodied, with supple tannins and a silky mouthfeel, and hints of mocha on the finish. I'd opt for drinking it over the near term. (JC) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Plump and juicy, with spiced plum, violet and fresh mint notes. Harmonious and balanced, showing plenty of generosity on the long finish. Drink now through 2030. (MW) Inner quote mark (12/2018)
