Located southwest of McLaren Vale township, the coastal, relatively cool hilltop Shiraz site consists of predominantly deep alluvial clays layered with seams of river bed gravel and stone. Slightly closer to the coast, the Maslin Beach property is the source of an early ripening Shiraz component. Grapes are harvested as they begin to show the bright, light berry fruit flavours which are just right for Rose. Fruit is crushed and held in contact on skins for several hours. After settling, juices are fermented at cool temperatures as you would for a white wine. A small proportion is vinified in new French oak barrels. The final mix is filtered and bottled early to capture the piquancy of Shiraz Rose.
Medium rose petal red. Fragrant, floral, sweet raspberries, cream and Turkish delight. Bursting with ripe red berries on the palate, lusciously full and fruity, with a clean, lingering back. During the winemaking process, ferments were brought to a stop by the addition of sugars to enhance the fruit driven qualities and enhance complexity. Paxton should be enjoyed while fresh and young.
