PAXTON Jones Block Shiraz, McLaren Vale

This biodynamically grown wine comes from one of McLaren Vale’s best-known vineyards. It is generous yet elegant in style, as might be expected of a wine made using grapes from vines more than 100 years old. These vines have only ever been hand-pruned and the grapes hand-picked, so they reliably give of their best, year after year.

Once picked and crushed, the grapes are macerated with their skins, usually for about two weeks, before fermentation. The wine is then matured in a combination of French and American oak barriques (40% new) for up to 22 months prior to blending and bottling. Jones Block Shiraz is noted for its full body, rich, complex flavours and integrated oak.

Region McLaren Vale

The McLaren Vale wine region is located between the Mount Lofty Ranges and the Gulf of St Vincent just South of Adelaide in South Australia. Historically it was John Reynell who established Chateau Reynella in 1838, and Thomas Hardy who purchased the historic Tintara in 1876, that kick started the development of the McLaren Vale wine industry. The climate is generally considered warm, although different aspects, altitude and the effect of the cooling ocean breezes moderate the climate within the different sub-regions of the Vale. A large number of soil types are present, although red-brown loams dominate. The biggest viticultural challenge is the potential for drought and the overall lack of water. Full bodied, robust and plush reds typify the McLaren Vale style. Plantings are dominated by Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, with smaller plantings of whites including Semillon, and Chardonnay. More recent plantings of Mediterranean varieties particularly suited to the climate, including Sangiovese, Tempranillo, Mourvedre, Savagnin and Fiano have also been very successful.
