Paxton AAA Shiraz Grenache 2020, McLaren Vale
Gold Medal - 2020 Royal Adelaide Wine Show
Established in 1979, Paxton is a family owned wine company. Founder and owner, David Paxton is one of Australia’s most highly respected viticulturalists – a reputation built on managing and growing wine grapes of exceptional quality for over 30 years.
The AAA on the Paxton Shiraz Grenache label pays homage to David’s days in the wool trade when it was stamped on the best grades of wool by the Guesser - and this wine is most definitely one of the best.
Bright crimson in colour this wine is a vibrant blend of approximately 60% Shiraz and 40% Grenache from some special little pockets amongst the Paxton vineyards. The Shiraz was selected from the ‘Gateway’ and ‘Jones Block’ vineyards, renowned for producing some of the best fruit in the region. These select parcels were blended with complimentary Grenache to create a wine that is engaging to a wide range of drinkers.
The blend is fun, delicious, appealing and, unlike some members of Paxton, not over the top.
The perfect accompaniment to wash down your Mum's roast pork.
