Excellent Langtons Classification. An eminent performer on the international wine show circuit, one of the nation's most celebrated Shiraz, the best of McLaren Vale. Fox Creek Reserve is assembled from a ruthless barrel cull of the best parcels to come out of each vintage. Offering great weight of fruit on the palate, an extraordinary range of flavours, the finish is long and legendary. Highly cellarable yet fully approachable when young, a Shiraz of great purity and unequivocally fine acidity, decanting and breathing are a must.
Shiraz is sourced from the choicest blocks of McLaren Vale vineyards endowed with a range of terroir contributing structural and flavour complexity. Soils include bay of biscay, grey loam, and red gravels. Grapes are harvested when fruit flavours, tannins and acids are in perfect harmony. Vinified on skins for eight to ten days, all components complete ferments in barrel, developing texture while integrating oak and tannins. Matured twenty one months in a combination of specialized oaks by a range of French, American and Australian coopers. Barrel by barrel selection throughout all stages of fermentation and maturation ensures that only the outstanding parcels are included in the final wine.
TASTING NOTES
Intense dark garnet colour. Red cherries, plums and a hint of herbaceous spearmint lift, meld with the complex aromas of cinnamon, nutmeg and roasted chestnuts. The palate is rich and full showing lashings of plums and cherries, with earthy nutty notes rounding out the mid palate. Power, richness and complexity, the structure is thick and rich, characterised by vibrant textural tannins which soften as the wine evolves, it finishes lingering and long.
