Fox Creek Short Row Shiraz 2002 750mL

Producer: Fox Creek
SKU: 186
Delivery date: Dispatch within 1-3 day's

Very deep red with vibrant ruby rim. Powerful aromatics of blackberry, licorice and all spice. The subtle lifted vanilla from barrel fermentation adds complexity. Typical of our best parcels of McLaren Vale Shiraz, showing strong vibrant black fruit with richness that is achieved only in a region such as this. The depth and intensity of the palate is well balanced by a firm tannin structure. The finish shows great length and has supporting acid sufficient to allow for mid term cellaring.

92/100
Wine Companion
Rich and concentrated; abundant blackberry fruit, a touch of vanilla oak, balanced tannins.
, James Halliday Issue: Oct 2003



88/100
Wine Spectator
A bit aggressive with its peppery tannins, but the flavors of cedary, earthy berry and licorice bubble up from underneath and persist impressively.

Fox Creek Fox & Hounds Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 2003 750mL

Appears bright cherry red with a darker plum coloured core. The nose shows licorice and dark fruits, toasty oak with a chocolatey rum & raisin 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.

Fox Creek Fox & Hounds Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 2002 750mL

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 Originally made for a private client from Fox Creek's own grapes, it was for sale to private customers and not available for normal retail sale.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.
