After another sell out vintage, the long awaited 2023 is here with bottled Grenache energy. Whole-bunch vibes emanate throughout, poised like a raspberry packed jack-in-a-box that has a sprinkling of dried cranberry thrown over the top before jamming the lid shut. On the palate, it's breezy and lively, with bright red fruits and lip-smacking fine tannins that leave you wanting more. Vibrant, complex and complete... this is everything we've loved about our favourite PAX vintages, wrapped up in one epic release. Think spring picnics in the sunshine, wood-fire pizza or enjoy at your local laneway eatery...

2023 
92pts Old-vine grenache off Kevin Schild's vineyard in Vine Vale; 30% whole bunches. A light ruby colour and fragrant aromas of raspberry, red plum and cranberry fruits dabbed with exotic ginger spice, light amaro tones, dried citrus rind and pressed flowers. Airy and spacious with a meaty, savoury flow across the tongue, light chalky tannins tugging at the roof of the mouth and a lively, lacy line of acidity - Dave Brookes, Halliday Wine Companion

2022
92pts "It took grenache roughly 150 years to become an overnight success in Australia but the glory days of Aussie grenache are upon us. This release is fresh, delicate, laced with dry spice and tannin, juicy with fruit, and high in drinkability. It feels authentic because it is. Raspberry characters with a glow to them. Earth notes inlaid. Everything on firm/sure tippy toes, ballerina-like, elevated and exact. There’s texture here too, warm texture, silk fresh from the ironing board, treated right. A lovely drink, it is." Campbell Mattinson, Wine Front

2019
92pts "Bright raspberries and some florals here with a fresh, intense impression on the nose, leading to a ripe, supple palate that has plenty of ripe, smooth, raspberry and red-plum flavor. Fresh, flavorful and fun style." - James Suckling Reviews
