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.
Vintage
In 2015, Adelaide Hills had the best vintage in a decade. The late season summer to
autumn rain that often challenges the Hills was conspicuous for its absence.
Excellent weather conditions prevailed at harvest time. The whites are described as
having exquisite quality, flavours and amazing natural acidity. The reds are highly
aromatic. 2015 was a great vintage.
Vineyard
The grapes come from a single vineyard in the Mount Crawford Forest with stony soils
which keep yields low and consistent. The vines are 13 years old and are trained on
a double cordon system to keep yields balanced. Viognier has a tendency to ripen
unevenly so picking dates are crucial to avoid excess acidity or heavy weighty
textures.
Winemaking
The pressing of the grapes was gentle and minimal, in order to keep the acid tight.
During vinification lots of lees work took place before and after fermentation, to
encourage palate density and mid palate depth. The yeast used during
fermentation was wild, which added more complexity to the wine. The wine spent
four months on its lees.
Tasting Note
Classic Viognier nose with ripe apricots and pears that follow through on to the
palate. Unoaked, the texture is light and lifted and it is balanced with beautifully
clean acidity.
Serving Suggestion
Stunning with Middle Eastern influenced salads, but also a classic with roast pork.
