Overview

The fruit for this wine was harvested when ripe, and the juice was gently pressed away from skins, seeds and stalks. After minimal settling, the juice was taken from the grape solids on the bottom of the tank and fermented in stainless steel to encapsulate fruit freshness.

Sourced from Paxton's "Thomas Block", this wine displays fruit freshness and structure, highlighting the suitability of the production of premium white varieties.

Expert Reviews

I like this Paxton pinot quite a lot. Pinot gris quite enjoys a sea view.

This is excellent. Fruity but savoury. Generous but characterful. It tastes of apples, pears, honeysuckle and musk but is riddled with spice, even earth. Pink tinge to the colour is an extra positive, or ill be to some. Biodynamically grown, wild fermented, whole bunches, hand picked. Great summer drinking. Crackles along the tongue. Rating 92 - Drink by 2015, Campbell Mattinson, winfront.com.au (NOV/2014).

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Established in 1979, Paxton is a family owned McLaren Vale wine company. Founder and owner, David Paxton is one of Australia’s most highly respected viticulturists – a reputation built on managing and growing wine grapes of exceptional quality for over 30 years.

The Paxton family have nurtured their own vineyards in McLaren Vale, South Australia, for three decades. Internationally recognised as one of Australia’s leading wine regions, McLaren Vale is renowned for the production of super premium quality wines – particularly red wines.

In 2000 the family released their first wine under the PAXTON label: the 1998 Paxton Shiraz. Today, under the direction and guidance of Michael Paxton – David’s son and Paxton winemaker –Paxton produces ten estate grown wines under the family label: Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Rose, Tempranillo, AAA (a Shiraz Grenache blend), ‘MV’ Shiraz, Quandong Farm Shiraz, Jones Block Shiraz, ‘The Vale’ Cabernet and the flagship wine, the Paxton EJ Shiraz.

The Paxton wine range is an approachable collection of wines that showcase McLaren Vale’s fruit quality (through Paxton’s superior vineyard sites), natural diversity and varietal expression. In the winery, minimal winemaking intervention ensures the integrity of the fruit from vineyard to bottle.

Paxton vineyards are spread across a diverse number of sites and soil types, which are managed without compromise from planting to harvest by Viticulturist, Daniel Lavrencic. Daniel continues to strive to minimise inputs and manages the Paxton vineyards using biodynamic farming principles –a system of farming without the use of synthetic fertilisers and pesticides with a focus on promoting healthy, living soils through the use of natural compost preparations.

Over the years, Paxton has introduced a number of environmental initiatives for the business, including becoming Australia’s first winery to join 1% For The Planet (a rapidly growing global network of environmentally conscious companies that give a least 1% of their annual sales to environmental causes every year) and achieving ZeroC/business certification, making PAXTON one of only a handful of Australian wineries to offset all emissions from activities within their operation.
