Producer: Fox Creek
SKU: 153
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 Originally made for a private client from Fox Creek's own grapes, it was for sale to private customers and not available for normal retail sale.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. Great for everyday drinking, and of course sharing. Highly recommended.

Fox Creek-Short Row-Shiraz-2002-750mL

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. Best Wine - McLaren Vale Wine Show 2003, Best Shiraz - McLaren Vale Wine Show 2003, Gold Medal - McLaren Vale Wine Show 2003, Silver Medal - Royal Adelaide Wine Show 2003.

Kay Brothers Amery-Hillside-Shiraz-2003-750mL

Kay's are specialist traditional red wine makers utilising grapes from their own 22-hectare Amery Vineyard.

 

A rich, round, soft, voluptuous, fruit driven Shiraz with a hint of confectionery sweetness in the background. A very approachable full bodied combination of blueberries, plum, Ribena, mocha chocolate, spice box, vanilla and pepper fill the palate with pleasurable flavours and the balanced soft tannin finish has both length and persistence.
