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.
