Paxton Jones Block Shiraz 2015 - Tasting Notes from the Winery

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.

REGION: McLaren Vale

VINEYARD: Jones Block

COLOUR: Deep red, with a purple intensity

PALATE: Full bodied and full of flavour, dense dark fruit drive and blackberry characters. A powerful yet sleek wine that packs a flavour punch

CELLARING: This wine can be enjoyed young, however careful cellaring for 10-30 years will be rewarded

VINTAGE:

VINIFICATION: Hand picked at optimum sugar and flavour equilibrium, the grapes were kept on skins for 15 days. The ferment was pumped over and plunged twice a day to extract colour, flavour and tannin structure. Once pressed, we used a combination of French and American oak barriques (30% new) for maturation of up to 20 months prior to blending and bottling. This wine was cellared for a further 12 months prior to release.

92 points - Mike Bennie - winefront.com.au

Biodynamic farmed from a single vineyard on the Paxton estate. Grows up in French and American oak barrels. Paxton have been a leading light in showing biodynamic (certified) viticulture can be done to scale, well. Inky, deep, throaty red of hearty, dark fruit character, all inky cassis and choc-berry, liquid spice, fat tannins. A juicy, fleshy, plush flow of espresso tinged plummy fruit, gritty, savouriness to close. This is a big, bold red of warming character and density. Touch of warmth in the mix. It’s done pretty well for its style.
