Fox Creek Short Row Shiraz
A highly awarded and very popular wine first produced in 1999. It has a rich and powerful aroma and palate of blackberries, toast and sweet fruit. The wine is well balanced with fresh rich fruit, soft tannins, has a long dry finish and is suitable for mid-term cellaring. A classic McLaren Vale Shiraz which benefits from a period of decanting.
Fresh aromas of strawberry, raspberry and confectionary intertwined with cinnamon, vanilla, black cardamom and dark chocolate.
Rich, fruit driven front palate is crammed with plums, black cherries, raspberry and musk. The mid palate is full of strawberries and cream and vanilla custard. This fruit richness and luscious mid palate is the hallmark of this wine style, with sympathetic and balanced oak completing the traditional Shiraz flavor and structural profile. The youthful grape tannins provide a gritty texture and firm length that will soften and integrate with age.
This wine is selected from intense and powerful Shiraz parcels from our best McLaren Vale vineyard blocks. The fruit was fermented on skins for 7 - 10 days in open fermenters prior to pressing, with 90% of the wine undergoing barrel fermentation. Maturation was in varying proportions of new and one year old French and American oak barrels for 20 months. The components are selected for this wine based on their fruit intensity, richness, structure and the integration or style of oak.
