Fox Creek

Fox Creek Wines

Fox Creek Wines was born when a small group of doctors and their wives decided to realise a lifelong passion - creating wine from bare earth and sunshine. The earth was found at McLaren Vale, one of South Australia's premier wine regions, renowned worldwide for its Shiraz.

As they believe wine is made principally in the vineyard, great attention is given to caring for the vines. Many of the vineyards are trellised to expose the grapes to sunshine and free movement of air which reduces susceptibility to disease. The premium wines are sourced entirely from grapes grown in the McLaren Vale region and most of them from our own vineyards.

Leader of the pack and the first wine made at Fox Creek was the 1994 Shiraz, which won the trophy for the best wine at the McLaren Vale Wine Show in 1995. Fox Creek has subsequently won this award in 1998 and 2003. Subsequent vintages of this wine, now called the Reserve Shiraz, have achieved international acclaim. Fox Creek's success continues with many wines recognised with trophies and medals from both national and international shows. The range of wines made by Fox Creek has gradually increased to fourteen.

Fox Creek Artic Fox Sparkling White Vermentino Verdelho Sauvignon Blanc NV 750mL

9322

A wine 10 years in the making, the name Arctic Fox was earmarked for the wine long before it was actualised. In 2013 we made a strategic decision to produce a sparkling wine that is authentically McLaren Vale. Arctic Fox utilises varietals that are superbly matched to our climate to produce a wine that reflects a sense of our region, our food and our lifestyle. It is crisp, vibrant, fruity and a perfect match for a coastal lunch on a warm sunny day. The Vermentino gives the wine it’s crisp acid line, the Verdelho provides the stone and citrus fruits and the portion of Sauvignon Blanc ties it all up with some herbal lift and perfume.

Fox Creek Jim's Script Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Cabernet Franc Petit Verdot 2015 750mL

9327

Cabernet Sauvignon contributes elegance, finesse and a structured tannin frame. Select vineyard parcels ensure vibrant aroma, flavour profile and elegant tannins. Components are barrel fermented in 2 and 3-year-old American and French oak. Merlot fills the front and mid palate with rich, red fruit. After a 2 year maturation in old French oak barrels, the tannins work to soften the wine. Fermented in older French oak barrels, Cabernet Franc contributes perfume and leafy aromatics, while drawing a linear tannin down the centre line to give the wine focus and length. Petit Verdot contributes freshness along with a sprinkling of spice and perfume to provide aromatic lift and palate weight. Like the rest of the blend it is fermented in older French oak barrels.

Fox Creek Post Master Grenache Shiraz Mourvedre 2016 750mL

9332

First produced in 2013 Postmaster GSM is a luscious, elegant, mid-weight wine that displays great flavour and balance, with a medium bodied nature that complements our food, lifestyle and climate. Grenache thrives in McLaren Vale’s warm maritime climate and diverse soil structure where it develops rich, balanced fruit flavour. Traditionally grown for producing fortified wines, the old vineyards contribute flavours and complexity that cannot be matched by younger vines.

Combined with the rich, ripe Shiraz and earthy, textural Mourvèdre, the combination of flavours and tannins deliver exotic gamey notes along with elegance, structure and longevity to the final blend. The 70-year-old Shiraz batch is matured in 2, 3 and 4-year-old French and American oak, barrels were selected for their spice, character and sweet tannin profiles. The 60 and 80-year-old Grenache is matured in older French and American puncheons and selected for the perfumed lift and tannin elegance and power. The Mourvèdre spends time in new, 1 and 2-year-old French and American oak puncheons and was selected for its earthy texture and ability to tie the blend together.

Fox Creek Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2000 750mL

169

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.

This big and rich Shiraz has been tamed slightly over the years to enhance its drinkability and poise in the glass but it still packs a punch on the palate.

Fox Creek Three Blocks Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 750mL

Each vineyard batch was matured in oak specifically matched to these Cabernet vineyards from a range of French coopers. The batches were shifted between different oak types to impart layers of flavour and enhance the structure. The final blend used different percentages of each of the vineyard parcels to achieve the layers of flavour and tannin profile desired.
