Fox Creek-Reserve-Cabernet Sauvignon-2000-750mL

Producer: Fox Creek
SKU: 169
Delivery date: Dispatch within 1-3 day's

Strong bright rim with a mid-deep red core.

The hints of blackcurrant and blackberry are typical characters of this variety. Typically McLaren Vale produces a dark, spicy chocolate character in Cabernet and this is evident. However, this wine has fascinating aromas of mint, leather and dark cherries. The oak shows when the wine is first poured, but with a little time in the glass yields to give a subtle cinnamon, char and cherry combination.

As a young wine, the palate is a little tight. The cherry and chocolate come through as does a blackberry fruit character. The tannin and acidity are firm, but balanced for a wine that will drink well when young, preferably with food. It will develop further complexity with cellaring.

Despite the challenging 2000 Vintage, this Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is a great surprise!

Concentrated wine, elegant with firm but integrated tannins, savoury spice, earthy and meaty.

Tasted 25 Nov 2015

Wine Companion
Medium to full red-purple; rich, ripe blackberry and cassis aromas are mirrored in the palate, which does however dip slightly in the middle, rising again with lingering tannins and subtle oak on the finish.

Fox Creek-Short Row-Shiraz-2002-750mL

Very deep red with vibrant ruby rim. Powerful aromatics of blackberry, licorice and all spice. The subtle lifted vanilla from barrel fermentation adds complexity. Typical of our best parcels of McLaren Vale Shiraz, showing strong vibrant black fruit with richness that is achieved only in a region such as this. The depth and intensity of the palate is well balanced by a firm tannin structure. The finish shows great length and has supporting acid sufficient to allow for mid term cellaring. Best Wine - McLaren Vale Wine Show 2003, Best Shiraz - McLaren Vale Wine Show 2003, Gold Medal - McLaren Vale Wine Show 2003, Silver Medal - Royal Adelaide Wine Show 2003.

d'Arenberg-The Coppermine Road-Cabernet Sauvignon-2002-750mL

The nose shows intense blackcurrant and cranberry fruit, and the subtle cedary cinnamon spice, barrel-ferment and oak derived aromas, violet and mint scents, as well as liquorice and chocolate smells. Interwined is this wounderful green edge that lifts the wine into a cool climate sepctrum which typifies the cold year. These aromas combine with some cassis, blueberry, and cranberry, with lingering mocha and plumy fruit and are just showing through amongst a long, intense vibrant, gritty fruit tannin finish.
