The Baron is back, gladly exchanging his bright red triplane for a bottle or two of good red wine. This suave Shiraz is crafted from some of the best Fox Creek estate grown fruit, much in the same way as the eponymous flying ace took out his pick of prey in the skies over France. A smooth, satisfying effort by one of Mclaren Vale's baronial winemaking estates, rich in character, distinctive in style and silky in texture, guaranteed to charm and to captivate. Introduce the Baron to barbequed scotch fillets or a potato crusted meatball pie.
Fox Creek's vineyards are hand pruned to control vigor, maintaining cropping levels quite low to yield small berries full of concentrated flavour and colour. Native flora and fauna are encouraged as they are excellent pest control and deter parasites. The winemakers sample the grapes regularly to determine optimum picking time as judged by flavour development and baume. Grapes are delivered promptly to the winery. Each batch is open fermented for seven to eight days on skins with low intensity pumpovers conducted to preserve primary fruit flavours. The wine is pressed off to finish fermentation and maturation, mostly in a selection of older French and American oak barrels.
TASTING NOTES
Vibrant purple. Intense aromas of mulberry, blackberries, plum and cherries, interwoven with nutmeg, cinnamon and clove. Fresh juicy red berries, plums and black cherries lead into a vanilla custard mid palate with hints of toast, coffee and mocha. The youthful tannins complete the experience with an injection of fresh toasty oak on the finish. The perfect accompaniment to richly sauced meats.
