There is a perception that anyone who’s into organics or biodynamics wears a cardigan and strokes their beard while talking to the vines. True in some cases but at Paxton in the McLaren Vale, they use the finest and most honest viticultural practices to bring the very essence of the vineyard into every bottle. The Spanish grape Tempranillo has taken a liking to the McLaren Vale and this food-friendly red shows all the generosity of the region with succulent fruit, a pleasing earthy structure and really approachable tannins. It’s even better with a plate of meat-based tapas.
Campbell Mattinson (2015 Vintage) says
From both organic and biodynamic vineyards. Regardless it is 100% lipsmackingly delicious. You could bottle this and market it as a cure for depression (joke, but you get the point). It's all licorice, earth, spice and choc, in flavour terms, but it feels velvety and succulent as well. In short, it's a cracking drink.Drink by 2020
