Paxton Quandong Farm Shiraz
Paxton Quandong Farm Shiraz from McLaren Vale in South Australia is as its name suggests 100% Shiraz. It has a lovely deep red and a vibrant purple hue. The aroma is of bright lifted red berry fruits, with a distinctive whole bunch and wild ferment character. Packed full of delicious fruit with a raspberry tartlet biscuit fragrance.
The wine is medium to full bodied, powerful and seductive. It has concentrated fruit and a delicate balance of French oak and silky tannins.
Quandong Farm Shiraz is a single vineyard wine that aims to highlight the intensity and brightness of fruit grown using biodynamic techniques. The farming practices are designed to produce wines of intensity, but also with layers of texture, flavour and interest for the consumer. This wine exhibits these characteristics and provides both concentration and flavour and a certain delicacy, rather than simple raw power.
