90pointsPaxton 2017 AAA Shiraz-Grenache (McLaren Vale)

Editors' Choice

Paxton's wines seem to have a lighter touch these days, allowing their biodynamically farmed fruit to shine. This blend of 60% Shiraz and 40% Grenache employs the use of whole bunch fermentation to brighten and beautify. A fragrant and downright pretty wine, it bounds and bounces with fleshy red berries, florals, toasty spices and that cinnamon, stalky whole bunch goodness. Medium in weight with supple tannins, this is a wine to drink young and even slightly chilled. Christina Pickard
