Paxton Grenache 2019

  • Certified Biodynamic
  • Certified Organic

On the nose a perfumed floral fragrance of strawberries and raspberries. This is a light to medium bodied wine with a crunchy lively red berry flavour. Hints of savoury spice arising from whole bunch fermentation to add slight grip and texture and creates wonderful length on the palate.

Our Thomas Block vineyard is extremely unique, and experiences colder than average McLaren Vale mornings, and warm summer days, providing the perfect ripening conditions for producing the most elegant of red wines; this Grenache is no exception.

WINEMAKING & VINTAGE
VINTAGE:
2019 Vintage saw below average rainfall over spring and virtually no rain during summer leading to a heavy reliance on irrigation. This together with a severe hail storm in November, the hottest day in South Australia since 2009 and regular maximum temperatures over 36 degree Celsius in February made for some challenges. However, our close proximity to the St Vincent Gulf did help moderate some extreme weather events. All in all we saw smaller tonnages with more intense flavour in the fruit. Another consistent year for Pinot Gris and Grenache, with early signs the Shiraz will carry great density of fruit flavours moving forward.
 
VINIFICATION:
Hand picked at optimum sugar and flavour balance, 20% of the harvest was used as whole bunches, with the remainder gently de-stemmed. A slow, cool ferment helped capture the character of the vineyard and a combination of pump overs and plunging for 10-14 days enhanced the tannin profile. When fermentation was finished the must was pressed to mature French oak barriques for maturation of six months prior to blending and bottling.
