Paxton NOW Shiraz 2021, McLaren Vale

Shiraz from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 30-Sep-2021
Deep, with dense inky dark-purple, lighter on edge. The nose is full and attractive, filled the glass with vibrant nuances of blackcurrants, plums, melded with wildflowers, violets and a peppery lifting. Full-bodied, aromas of blackcurrants, plums enriched by liquorice, black pepper and violets fragrance. The wine is mouth-filling with natural powdery tannin extraction, unfolding subtle graphite minerals. Juicy, bright fruit supported by lively, balanced acidity. This is a beautiful, naked expression of Shiraz with juicy black fruit on a natural, powdery tannin structure. Match with lamb kabab and braised beef brisket over the next 2-3 years. Open top fermenters, around 20 days hand plunged, fermented to 14% alc, transferred to tank for MLF and brief ageing. No So2 or preservative added, organic and biodynamic certified. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Sept 2021 RRP $30
