NOW by Paxton Shiraz 2017 - Tasting Notes from the Winery
Introducing NOW by PAXTON which stands for NATURAL ORGANIC WINE. The consumer market demand has been growing steadily for Preservative Free/Natural wines. As leaders in organic production, it was obvious that Paxton needed a product for this category. In addition to Natural, PF & Organic, we wanted to make a young, drink NOW style shiraz that was different from our existing Shiraz styles.

VINTAGE: 2017 was a fantastic year for winemaking in McLaren Vale. We had an extremely wet winter and our vineyards reached full saturation point. Spring brought very consistent fruit set and flowering. The rain continued throughout Summer and mild days with cool nights allowed for a slow ripening season. These conditions resulted in fragrant whites with lower acidity, and elegant reds with very attractive primary fruit flavours and lower alcohols.
VINIFICATION: The grapes were picked at optimum sugar and flavour equilibrium. They were tipped into open top fermenters and gently hand plunged for 14 days, extracting the vibrant characteristics of the vineyard.
When primary fermentation was complete, we pressed to tank for secondary fermentation before bottling.
No sulphur dioxide or preservatives were added in the making of this wine.
