Paxton 'EJ' Shiraz is Paxton's flagship wine. It is named after David Paxton’s mother and family matriarch Elizabeth Jean.
A limited release wine, the EJ Shiraz is sourced from vines originally planted in 1887 from their Thomas Block vineyard. This is renowned for producing fruit of exceptional flavour and natural balance. The Shiraz vines are amongst the oldest in McLaren Vale and are carefully hand pruned and thinned to ensure the low and uniform yields required for super premium Shiraz.
This wine shows classic McLaren Vale Shiraz characteristics, with an elegant, delicate front exploding with a concentration of savoury fruit, supported by full, silky tannins unique to old vine wine.
An exemplary Shiraz not to be missed!
