Tasting Notes for Paxton NOW Preservative Free Shiraz 2022 from the Winery

NOW by PAXTON stands for NATURAL ORGANIC WINE. The consumer market demand has been growing steadily for No Added Preservative and Natural wines. As leaders in organic production, it was obvious that Paxton needed a product for this category. In addition to Natural & Organic, we wanted to make a young, drink NOW style of Shiraz that was different from our existing Shiraz styles.

Aroma: A surprisingly complex flavour explosion of earthy ironstone and cold-smoked chacuterie layered on undertones of plump raspberries. As the wine has more time in the glass blueberries and bubblegum come to the surface balanced by subtle flints of fresh marjoram.

Palate: Medium bodied, juicy, easy, drink “NOW’ style of wine. Reminiscent of swimming in natural hot springs on a fresh autumn morning, the comforting feel of warm water washing over your skin. The ferrous character comes through on the palate leading into slightly gravelly tannins offset by a delicate acidity lengthening the palate to a smooth finish.

Drink with: BBQ lamb or steak

Cellaring: Drink “NOW”

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, however, sulphur dioxide is a natural by product of the fermentation process.

94 Points: James Halliday

Deep, bright crimson. No preservative also means no oak, and managing the ferment is not drop-dead easy. This wine has a rich stream of cherry (red and black), plum and blackberry ith a smooth glass of tannis. And the screwcap has given SO3-free wines a longre hold on life than was possible with ork-finished wines. Drink to 2024.
