Jauma 2017 McLaren Vale Disco

"Disco Special" is a one-off bottling from James Erksine made with 60% Shiraz and 20% Grenache sourced from Fiona Wood's organically farmed vineyards in McLaren Vale. Fermented in tank with wild yeast then bottled under cork in recycled beer bottles with no added sulfur, this is a lively blend we can dig. Classic aromas of ripe plum, floral spice and salty black olives on the nose, at 12% there is enough tannin and sparkling acidity to give verve to the palate. Flavors are fresh and redolent of crunchy blueberries, anise and spiced plum. Great for barbecues this summer! Amanda Bowman

Paxton 2015 McLaren Vale Shiraz

We've been fans of the Paxtons since we started carrying their wines in 2008. Though we've never walked through the vineyards in Australia, we have hosted tastings with the Paxton family over the years, and they're great people. Their wines are also very delicious. This is a Shiraz blended from four of of their bio-dynamically farmed vineyard parcels, and giving a fresh but very generous introduction to the McLaren Vale region. There's a subtle touch of oak that blends perfectly with the lush silky Shiraz fruit. A full bodied wine, for sure, but with great balance and drink-ability.
