Fox Creek Sauvignon Blanc

Current vintage

2013

A pale green, straw coloured wine with an aroma of citrus blossum and lemongrass. The wine is crisp with fresh flavours of gooseberry and melon with a clean and zesty finish. Very popular in restaurants and cafes.

Appearance

Pale Gold.

Bouquet

Classic aromas of lantana, citrus blossom, kaffir lime and lemon zest.

Palate

Grapefruit, hints of rockmelon and fresh lime juice characters fill a luscious front and mid palate, these flavours persist in the mouth before finishing with great length and crisp, balanced acid.

Winemaking

2013 had a warm ripening season, with harvest occurring on the last day of January through to mid February. The grapes achieved flavour ripeness earlier than most years, the warm ripening conditions allowed the development of powerful but fresh flavours that balance the wine’s richness and intensity. The grapes were harvested from two individual McLaren Vale vineyards: The Fox Creek Cellar Door vineyard contributes the fruit and mid palate weight and the other vineyard near Sellicks Hill provides the herbaceousness and citrus characteristics. A cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks for two weeks with two different yeast strains expressed the grapes natural characters and enhance the structure of the wine.

Technical analysis

  • Alcohol 13.4%

Ageing potential
