Paxton Jones Block Single Vineyard Mclaren Vale Shiraz 2016 x6
$270.00 + DELIVERY
Char-grilled beef fillet filled with basil and sun-dried tomatoes.
French and American oak.
Deep crimson red with purple hues
A bold drive of pepper spice and ripe mulberries with a toasted oak and bourbon punch.
Full bodied wine with layers of secondary fruit flavours, a traditional style of wine making where brilliant fruit meets luxurious and exquisite oak. A dense palate structure and beautifully integrated oak give this wine a fruit driven and fine grain tannin finish.
Three parcels open-fermented, one parcel finished fermentation in new American oak, the remainder extended post-fermentation maceration, matured for 20 months in French barriques (75% new) and American barriques (45% new). David Paxton believes that the people who apply the art and science of viticulture are just as important as the winemaker in the making of good wines. That's why for three decades the Paxtons have nurtured their prized vineyards, some of which were first planted in the 1890s. Our aim is to showcase the intensity of fruit grown biodynamically, and to champion the cause for wider adoption of sustainable farming methods. Biodynamics is the most advanced form of organic farming. It uses natural preparations and composts to bring the soil and the vine into balance, resulting in exceptionally pure and expressive fruit. Healthy vines make better wines. Jones Block Shiraz is well regarded for its generous yet elegant style; a style we believe demonstrates the superior quality of McLaren Vale Shiraz.
