APPEARANCE

Bright deep purple

BOUQUET

A rich fruit filled bouquet dominated by black cherry, ripe plum and blackberry, with lifted raspberry notes over toasty oak, vanilla bean and cinnamon.

PALATE

A rich palate of red and dark fruits such as plum, blackcurrant and red cherry lay over complexing characters of toast, roasted nuts, vanilla, and chocolate. Structural oak, youthful tannins and balanced acidity underpin a generous but composed palate that finishes tight with good length of flavour.

ALCOHOL

14.5%

AGEING POTENTIAL

This wine is made to be enjoyed now while it is fresh, young

and fruity.

WINEMAKING

This vintage had a mild growing season with the shiraz harvest undertaken between the 12th

and 16th of March. Flavour development was steady with good canopy architecture and mild conditions during ripening allowed us to achieve the flavour intensity and purity we were seeking while still managing to maintain moderate sugar levels. These ripening conditions enabled the different vineyards to be picked when the fruit was at its optimal. Judicious oak use contributed balanced oak flavours and aromas that complement the wines tannin structure and richness.

Each batch was fermented for 7-8 days on skins with low intensity pump overs conducted to preserve the primary fruit flavours in the wine. The wine was then pressed off to finish fermentation in tank or old oak barrels. Most batches spend part of their maturation time in old French and American oak.

Fox Creek Wines

Fox Creek has a passionate winemaking history based on a standard of excellence strived for in every drop that bears our name. It’s a life-long passion that dates back to 1984 when Helen and Dr. Jim Watts purchased a 32 hectare McLaren Vale property on Malpas Road, for a delicious diversion — becoming winemakers.

Ironically, they were advised against growing vines in the black clay soils that had previously been used for planting barley. Undeterred by the skeptics, their enthusiasm and careful nurturing of the young vines paid off. The vineyard bore exceptionally good quality fruit, which in turn, resulted in exceptionally good wine.

At first, their grapes were sold to other wineries in McLaren Vale, until Jim and Helen took advantage of the recently acquired winemaking skills of their daughter. The excellent 1994 award-winning wine they made, now Reserve Shiraz, was feted as McLaren Vale’s Wine of the Year in 1995. A prestigious beginning for Fox Creek, newly named by Helen, who drew inspiration from the winery’s winter creek and its resident foxes.

The family’s commitment to the McLaren Vale wine region went hand-in-hand with a determination to cultivate a discerning wine brand exuding the qualities of craftsmanship, innovation, consistency and authenticity. The rest is international award-winning history.
