Fox Creek own and operate three estate vineyards, planted to choice terroir and clime, very near the village of Willunga. Chardonnay is harvested at ripe and healthy baumes, grapes are crushed and two thirds of the juices are vinified in a mix of new and one year old French oak barrels, a moderate proportion is wild yeast fermented for greater complexity. Barrel components are matured on yeast lees for several months, developing a rich creamy palate. The balance is vinified in fermenters at moderate temperatures to retain maximum fruit character. Components are assembled and the final wine is returned to oak for a spell of integration, integrating flavours and enhancing the structure prior to bottling.
Pale golden hue. Golden peach, nectarine and honey notes over creamy yeast and subtle biscuity oak for a rich complex bouquet. A rich fruity palate showing golden peach, apricot and pineapple flavours. The textural oak frame surrounds dollops of creamy butter, honey and toast, a crisp mandarine finish completing a complex, restrained and balanced wine. Fully integrated oak coupled with crisp acidity gives zing, persistence and length.
