His children established a grazing station nearby, on a property acquired from the Baillieu family along Portsea Ocean Beach, ultimately planted to vineyards in 2000. These are the most extreme western longitudes of Mornington, the undulating paddocks and sweeping views of tempestuous Bass Strait are a magical place for growing Burgundesque styles of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, well protected north facing parcels of propitious free draining limestone and calcareous sands.

Paxton focus on soil health, bio-diversity and nonchemical weed control. Bee hives on the property contribute to diversity, aid pollination and maximise seed production of the inter-row pastures. Natural composts enrich the soils and are the basis for healthy vine growth. Each vineyard parcel is separately handled, destemmed and vinified in a mix of open and static fermenters, plunged and pumped over each twice daily over the course of a fortnight for optimal extraction of colour, flavour and tannin. Batches are pressed into a selection of seasoned and new French and American oak barriques for completion of ferments and a year's maturation.
Deep mulberry, purple hues. Powerful, lifted ripe berry fruit, vanilla and chocolate, French cocoa and American vanilla oak notes. Rich, juicy fruit, spiced berries and currant, dark chocolates and licorice, flavoursome, textural mouthfeel and a lingering savoury back palate. Mouthfilling, yet lingering, elegant flavours, drinking very well immediately upon release.
