Fox Creek-Short Row-Shiraz-2001-1.5L

Producer: Fox Creek
SKU: 185
Delivery date: Dispatch within 1-3 day's

Vibrant rim with an intense dark plum core. The nose of this wine is powerful and aromatic. It has a suggestion of a rich intense wine with plenty of blackberry fruit. The oak shows as a sweet, lifted character and has an enticing effect in combination with the powerful fruit aroma. This wine is a typical McLaren Vale Shiraz. With a strong central core of black fruit, there is a sweetness that only comes from a region such as this. The fruit is well balanced by firm yet very soft tannins and the finish is dry and lengthy, with acidity to carry the wine through a few years in the bottle.

Wine Companion
Medium to full red-purple; the bouquet has rich, ripe blackberry/blackcurrant and chocolate fruit aromas supported by controlled oak. The powerful, complex, fruit-driven palate, with abundant ripe tannins.

90/100
Wine Spectator
Bright flavors, gentle texture and lovely balance add up to a stylish wine that shows pure currant, blueberry and a touch of sage and pepper as the finish lingers. Tannins are finely textured.

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.

Craneford-John Zilm-Shiraz-2002-750mL

A great example of Barossan shiraz. Rich and ripe blackberry fruit partner with well integrated charry oak in the background. A luscious mouthfeel with some earthy tobacco and licorice nuances.

 

Finishes long. Has developed beautifully and is drinking well.
