Paxton Jones Block Shiraz 2018 - 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.

VARIETY: Shiraz

100%: Organic | Biodynamic

REGION: McLaren Vale

VINEYARD: Jones Block

COLOUR: Dark purple with amber red hues

AROMA: Concentrated clarity of fruit with blueberries, ripe plum and a hint of black pepper, supported with a lovely hint of spicy French oak that gives a savoury lift.

PALATE: A premium single vineyard Shiraz that is rich, dense and mouth-filling with flavour. The palate shows exceptional fruit quality and a sublime integration of premium French oak. Richness, depth and concentrated fruit flavour with notes of plums and blackcurrant give this wine amazing length and power.

DRINK WITH: Scotch fillet or porterhouse steak

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

VINTAGE: 2018 gave us very good winter rainfall allowing the vineyards to reach saturation point. A very dry spring encouraged healthy foliage growth and controlled the vines vigor well. We experienced one of the driest summers in 30 odd years; this meant a great concentration of flavours and intensity of fruit especially within our Mediterranean red varietals. The whites reached fruit ripeness with low acidity therefore producing a very bright and vibrant flavour profile. All and all, a very strong 2018 vintage with fantastic wines.

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 (40% new) for maturation of up to 22 months prior to blending and bottling. This wine was cellared for a further 6 months prior to release.
