Our flagship wine, the EJ Shiraz is named after David Paxton's mother and family matriarch Elizabeth Jean.
A limited release wine, the EJ Shiraz is sourced from 125+ year-old vines from our Thomas Block vineyard, which 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.
Although still very young, the 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!
2012 - 95pt Halliday Wine Companion 2017
Spearmint, lavender, redcurrant and leather, with creamy oak smoothing over the top. It's bold, balanced, elegant and familiar, and yet it feels individual at the same time. Sappy herb notes are part of this impression; so too touches of game. Clearly this has many years ahead of it. (Campbell Mattinson)
