The Character

Tasting Notes A surprisingly complex flavor explosion of earthy ironstone and cold-smoked charcuterie layered on undertones of plump raspberries. As the wine has more time in the glass blueberries and bubblegum come to the surface balanced by subtle flints of fresh marjoram. Medium bodied, juicy, easy, drink “NOW’ style of wine. The ferrous character comes through on the palate leading into slightly gravelly tannins offset by a delicate acidity lengthening the palate to a smooth finish.

Overall Juicy, easy-drinking

Mouthfeel Silky tannin and a velvety finish

Aromas Raspberries, strawberries, mulberries, plums, baking spice

Pairings BBQ lamb or steak

The Story

Our NOW by PAXTON or Natural Organic Wine features No Added Preservatives to our Organic and Biodynamic grapes in a drink NOW style which boasts fresh, bursting fruit flavors, made naturally. 2021 was one of those dream vintages that don’t come along every year; cool, refreshing nights and dreamy, sun-kissed days without any extended stretches of intense heat. After a warmer than usual November there were only four days above 40 degrees. It was mainly dry throughout the ripening season with the odd spattering of just enough rain to keep the grapes beautifully plump, juicy and full of bright fruit flavors and time to dry out in between so disease pressure was low. The gentle undulation between these varying temperatures and perfectly healthy canopies allowed us to really ponder picking times, spending plenty of time out in the vineyard tasting grapes getting the timing of picking just right. The generous harvest has rewarded us with delightfully delicate fruit and varietal characters, with each variety singing its own tune. Natural acids are in perfect balance and the smooth, sensuous tannins completed by an epic energetic vibration that we can’t wait to share with you.
