Gateway Vineyard is the source of the Shiraz component, grown to an inhospitable mixture of limestone and mudstone rubble. The vines are restricted in their growth and produce tiny yields of intensely concentrated fruit. Vines on the Jones Block are an average age of forty five years. Hand pruning and thinning of individual bunches combined with minimal irrigation ensures the low and uniform yield required for the production of super premium Shiraz. Quandong Farm, Nineteenth and Landcross Farm Vineyard are the sources of Grenache, from carefully hand tended bush vines. Paxton was matured eighteen months in a combination of new and used American and French 225 litres oak barriques.
