Fox Creek began to flow when a group of medicos decided to realize a lifelong passion and create the best possible wines out of bare earth and sunshine. The Fox Creek vineyards were established from the ground up to be the most environmentally friendly, whilst the vines themselves are spoiled with attention. Dr Jim Watts writes the recipe for a whole that's greater than the sum of parts, Merlot for elegance and plummy fruit, the silk of Cabernet tannins, aromaticness of Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot for titillating spice and dazzling blueberry fruit.
The essential cépage of Medoc, half of Cabernet and third of Merlot, the balance in Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. The superlative quality of Fox Creek begins with an exacting pruning of vines to achieve smaller yields of the most intense fruit. Batches are open fermented for a week and a half on skins before pressing off. The Cabernet component is vinified in a selection of prior use French and American oak barrels, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc are treated to the finest seasoned French. Alcohol 14.5%
TASTING NOTES
Deep purple red. Fresh leafy and minty lift, hints of perfume, chocolates and cigar box, blueberries and blackcurrant, nutmegs and clove. Raspberries, black cherry and blackberry, coffee and mocha, hints of toast, brown spices and roasted nuts, Jim's fine silky tannins cosset the palate, delivering focus, flattering style and splendid length.
