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.
The majority of the fruit is grown in the subregions of Greenock and Bethany in the
Barossa, from vines of up to 20 years old. The addition of some fruit from a young
vineyard grown at higher altitude in the Eden Valley, adds vibrancy to the resulting
Each plot was vinified separately and the yeast used depends on the fruit
characters. Two main cultured yeasts were used; one for the warmer ferments and
one for the cooler ferments depending on what best suits the vineyard. The wine was
fermented for over ten days in stainless steel and was then pressed to 225 litre oak
barrels for 16 months in total. Gently filtered prior to bottling.
Elegant and restrained, Eight Uncles is all about primary fruits - plums, damson and
cherries with a hint of mocha and peppery spice. The smooth velevety tannins add
to its appeal with an unusually vibrant finish.
The ideal accompaniment for lamb chops or traditional roast beef.
