Fox Creek's vineyards are hand pruned to control vigor, maintaining cropping levels quite low to yield small berries full of concentrated flavour and colour. Native flora and fauna are encouraged as they are excellent pest control and deter parasites. The winemakers sample the grapes regularly to determine optimum picking time as judged by flavour development and baume. Grapes are delivered promptly to the winery. Each batch is open fermented for seven to eight days on skins with low intensity pumpovers conducted to preserve primary fruit flavours. The wine is pressed off to finish fermentation and maturation, mostly in a selection of older French and American oak barrels.
Vibrant purple. Intense aromas of mulberry, blackberries, plum and cherries, interwoven with nutmeg, cinnamon and clove. Fresh juicy red berries, plums and black cherries lead into a vanilla custard mid palate with hints of toast, coffee and mocha. The youthful tannins complete the experience with an injection of fresh toasty oak on the finish. The perfect accompaniment to richly sauced meats.
