Paxton Quandong Farm Biodynamic Mclaren Vale Shiraz 2017
Paxton's Quandong Farm Shiraz is a single vineyard wine that aims to highlight the intensity and brightness of fruit grown using biodynamic techniques. Their farming practices are designed to produce wines of intensity, but also with layers of texture, flavour and interest. This wine wine exhibits these characteristics and provides both concentration and flavour with a certain delicacy, rather than simple raw power.
Medium bodied wine with plum, blueberry and cherry fruit characters. A carbonic maceration and wild fermentation influenced viscosity on the mid palate with a touch of French oak and cinnamon spice balanced with silky tannins.
Rated 95/100 James Halliday, 2019: "...a full-flavoured yet elegant medium-bodied wine, with effortless aromas and flavours of dark cherries, plum and blackberries on the farewell."
