95/100
The Wine Advocate
Surprise, surprise, the 2002 Merlot is knock-out stuff. Its opaque purple color is accompanied by juicy aromas of roasted coffee, chocolate, berries, and toasty oak, supple tannin, large, corpulent flavors, and well-integrated acidity.
WA, Robert Parker Jr. Issue: #148



92/100
Wine Companion
The cool vintage is to the advantage of the variety; olive, blackcurrant and spice; long, fine palate and finish.
, James Halliday Issue: Mar 2006

Craneford-John Zilm-Grenache-2004-3.0L

Garnet in color, this wine offers attractive scents of black cherry, raspberry and plums with American oak. On the palate it displays very ripe fruit, high alcohol with a hint of sweetness, and good grip on the finish.

Two Hands-Deer in Headlights-Shiraz-2003-3L

2003 vintage:

Winter started with heavy rains, which tapered off resulting in below average rainfalls and a successful budburst in early spring. Flowering and set occurred in November, promoting uniform berry development and bunch numbers were on average for the season. Veraison for Shiraz and Cabernet started in late January with the older vines producing lighter crops. The height of summer saw 65mm of rainfall in the last week of February requiring swift viticultural practices to prevent the onset of disease and fungus. Our 2003 Barossa Shiraz displayed great colour and depth of flavour. Yields overall were below the long-term average but the grapes were of good quality and the resultant wines display terrific potential.

 

Wine description:

Bright purple plum colour. Glossy red fruits and spiced plum cake on the nose with a hint of vanilla spice. The palate shows swathes of rich generous fruit, ripe blackberry intermingled with soft cedary spice. A fine coating of gentle tannins washes over the palate with a long and persistent finish to end.

The wine is bright cherry red with a darker plum coloured core. The nose shows liquorice and dark fruits, toasty oak with a chocolatey rum & raison aroma. The entry to the palate is soft with a rich solid palate that is typically McLaren Vale, with blackcurrant and stewed plum flavours. The structure is typical of Fox Creek showing ripe fruit tannin with integrated oak complexity.
