Fox Creek-Fox & Hounds-Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon-2002-3L

Producer: Fox Creek
SKU: 155
Delivery date: Dispatch within 1-3 day's

A special McLaren Vale Shiraz-Cabernet Sauvignon blend from the excellent 2002 vintage. Originally made for a private client from Fox Creek's own grapes, it was for sale to private customers and not available for normal retail sale. The blend in this wine is 60% Shiraz and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon. The Shiraz was fermented on skins for 8 days and about 10% of the wine saw barrel fermentation during the later stages of the fermentation. The Cabernet Sauvignon components were fermented to dryness, before being transferred to oak. Maturation was in approximately 20% French and 80% American oak, with about 30% of this being new oak.

From the extremely respected Fox Creek winery, this blend of Shiraz, Cab Sav offers a beautiful dark fruit palate, developed aromas, ripe tannins, well balanced and offers a very drinkable experience. A perfectly cellared wine since release and with the slower ageing from the larger format, there’s still loads of drinking time left. Great for everyday drinking, and of course sharing. Highly recommended.
