Professional Reviews

88/100
Wine Spectator
Firm, with pretty blueberry and currant flavors at the core and dusky herb and cedar notes weaving through the mildly chewy finish.
WS, Harvey Steiman Issue: 2005



87/100
Wine Companion
Medium to full red-purple; ripe blackcurrant fruit floods the bouquet; the massive weight, extract and ripeness of the fruit on the palate does not work nearly as well as it does for the Shiraz.

Fox Creek Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2000 750mL

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.

Fox Creek Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 1999 750mL

Strong bright rim with a deep red core. The lifted bouquet of this Cabernet is reminiscent of red cherries and hints of blackcurrant. This wine shows a little more herbaceous character, although the typical McLaren Vale dark chocolate character is still evident. The oak is particularly attractive, showing some subtle cinnamon and a hint of char.

The palate shows rich, sweet blackberry and chocolate, with the tannin structure tight. The middle palate is full and is followed by a drying, elegant finish. With flavours that are very persistent and a tight structure, this wine shows potential for ageing well.

Viking Wines Grand Shiraz 2003 1.5L

A seductive bouquet, showing fresh brambly fruit with a menthol lift. Big, very-fine, dusty tannins need time to integrate but the deep, pure, fruit has enough power to kick through. Liquorice, chocolate and black plum flavours finish with terrific length and persistence. A muscular-weight wine its tight and demands time.
