On the nose there are some citrus hints and tropical fruit. The palate is light and fresh and delivers what is promised with a salad of fresh fruit, and some ginger spice before finishing dry.

Michelle says: "Pure Biodynamic fruit, Exceptional value for money!

Pale straw in colour, The Paxton Guesser White is a great biodynamic white wine blend from McLaren Vale. The blend is changed each year as the Paxton folk pick out the varieties that are showing bright fruit driven characters. For 2016 we have a trio of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris. Enjoy it now.

VINTAGE: 2016 was a very strong year in McLaren Vale. After six months without rain, we had 40mm in the first week of February. This slowed down the baumes and allowed the acidity to catch up, therefore, giving the fruit fantastic flavour equilibrium. Berry numbers were high due to an even veraison which lead to the highest quality crops and tonnages this millennium.

VINIFICATION:  Harvested at night, when sugar and acid equilibrium was optimum. Whole berries were pressed to capture the beautiful, soft fruit flavours. Post press, the juice was settled, followed by rack-off of the clear free-run. The wine was fermented between 12-16 degrees Celsius in stainless steel vats, without any sulphur additions, until the end of fermentation. Light filtration and early bottling helped enhance this soft, fruit driven wine.
