Fox Creek Shiraz-Grenache-Mourvedre
A wine to be enjoyed with food. Both the nose and palate have a blackberry and dark cherry character. There is a sweet middle palate and the soft savoury aromatic character of the Grenache leads on to a beautifully soft finish.
Bright cherry red.
Perfumed floral lift with aromas of plum and black cherry, finished with cinnamon, cloves, fennel seed and vanilla bean.
Shiraz and Grenache in balanced proportions deliver perfumed lift and juicy red berry fruits with the Mourvedre contributing the wines richness, length and structure. The front and mid palate are filled with a luscious mix of plums, black cherries, caramel and milk chocolate, complimented by mixed brown spice. The wine finishes with subtle, integrated oak and elegant, textural grape tannins. This is a classic regional style that is fantastic with food.
Shiraz batches matured in 2, 3 and 4 year old French and American oak were selected for their spice, character and sweet tannin profiles. The Grenache and Mourvedre were matured in large, new and 1 and 2-year-old French and American oak puncheons. The composition of the wine is Shiraz 50%, Grenache 37% and Mourvedre 13%.
- Alcohol 14 .5%
While crafted for immediate appeal, this wine will mature well with 3-6 years cellaring in controlled conditions.
