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 Originally made for a private client from Fox Creek's own grapes, it was for sale to private customers and not available for normal retail sale.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