You must give this wine time in a decanter before drinking. After a few hours you will reap the benefits, as this wine has great depth of colour, aroma and flavour - typical of the best wines of the McLaren Vale region.
Dark colour; opulent, rich and mouthfilling; chocolate, vanilla and mocha provide much of the energy, though there is plenty of blackberry/licorice fruit.

The Fox Creek winery was created by a small group of doctors and their wives who wanted to pursue a lifelong passion of creating wine from bare earth and sunshine. The 32 hectare vineyard in McLaren Vale was purchased in 1984 by Jim and Helen Watts who planted and nurtured young vines in the black clay soils that were previously used for growing barley. Although they were advised against this, the vines bore some incredibly high quality fruit which in turn was used to produce incredibly high quality wine.
Although the vineyard is not certified organic, sustainable vineyard practices are used and chemicals or other artificial agents are avoided. They also devote time to planting indigenous plants and trees around the vineyard which provide food and shelter for their native birds, which make for excellent pest control!
