A ripe and inviting array of red and black fruits, spice, fruitcake mocha and sea salt; the palate is bright and fresh, with generous lashings of sweet fruit and a trailing accent of choc mint that weaves seamlessly through the palate; a warm and easy going wine, with plenty of time ahead. Score: 94 points -- James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion, Jan 2012
This is McLaren Vale Shiraz at its finest. From the acclaimed 'Jones Block', this wine is well regarded for its generous, yet elegant style. A small parcel was selected from our century old vines for complex fruit flavours and seamless structure. Grapes are hand pruned; wine is aged in fine grained French and American oak. As always, no corners cut. A rich, savoury and spicy blend, this wine has a fleshy middle palate and great length. Enjoyed with food, a glass or three of Paxton is certain to spice up the evening.
Vegan friendly wine.
