juicy blackcurrants, red liquorice with an earthy hint.
Producer Note
Fox Gordon is a family run winery specialising in contemporary, premium and awardwinning
wines from the Barossa Valley and Adelaide Hills. From a diverse selection of
grape varieties, each bottle is the ultimate fusion of wine and fashion. Made using
the Fox Gordon philosophy of low input and low yield to give maximum flavour, while
preserving the inherent qualities of the fruit and the site; these stylish wines are
modern, bright and vibrant.
Vineyard
The fruit is sourced from South Australia. The Cabernet Sauvignon comes from the
Barossa Valley and the Tempranillo comes from Adelaide Hills. The Cabernet vines
are 23 years old and the Tempranillo vines are 13 years old. Good Cabernet is
difficult to find in the Barossa, however, Fox Gordon has sourced four brilliant sites in
the last 20 years and this comes from one of them.
Winemaking
The By George is characterised by two things. Firstly, the fruit was co-fermented for
ten days and then racked to tank for two weeks of lees work, to build texture and
finish ferment. Secondly, large format, older barrels were used, which gives perfect
oak character to the wine while still keeping the fruit fresh. 10% went into new French
oak barrels.
Tasting Note
Fragrant red summer fruits and notes of wild herbs are first noticeable followed by the
clean, ripe nuances of juicy blackcurrants, red liquorice with an earthy hint. Lovely
fine tannins thanks to the Cabernet highlighted by the herbal notes from the cool
climate Tempranillo.
Serving Suggestion
