Pax is a merlot predominant wine from our premium range. Pax is the Latin word for peace.

The 2011 Pax is an aged wine from our library stock.

This wine has complex aromas of red fruits and anise. It has a plush texture with melting tannins which make for a very good drinking wine. 


Growing Season: Although a challenging growing season our organic vineyard produced top quality, ripe, fruit.


Tasting Notes

Technical Details: The grapes were hand picked and destemmed. Fermentation was by wild yeast from our vineyard. The wine spent time macerating on it's skins to achieve balance and was then pressed with a traditional basket press. The wine components developed in oak barrels during winter and spring and was then racked and blended and returned to oak to mature prior to bottling. The wine was lightly fined with organic egg whites.

Blend: 90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc
