The 2007 Tempranillo was the first release of this single vineyard wine, with only 100 dozen cases made. We’ve been trialling a number of different grape varieties that perform well in warmer climates and use less water. At this stage, Tempranillo shows great promise for the region. Being a lighter style the wine is approachable and soft with attractive aromatics.
Paxton are leaders in both organic and biodynamic viticulture and winemaking. Fruit for all wines are sourced solely from estate vineyards in McLaren Vale, South Australia. In 2000 the family released their first wine under the Paxton label: the 1998 Paxton Shiraz.
