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 the Adelaide Hills the low winter and spring rainfall meant the vintage started as
very dry and in some cases irrigation was required, which is rare for this region. Rain
in late January was worth its weight in gold; the outcome was above average yields.
The 2016 vintage has been hailed as one of the best all round vintages of the past
decade, resulting in excellent quality fruit.
Vineyard
Kersbrook is on northern end of the Adelaide Hills where the climate is warmer and
there is less rainfall than other areas of the Hills. The vineyard is situated at
approximately 480 metres above sea level and has some very high sloped areas,
with the Fiano planted on an eastern aspect. The vines are over 15 years old and
are grown in shallow soils, which have a lot of iron stone through the soil profile.
Winemaking
This wine was made with minimal intervention. Cool fermentation preserved the
varietal characters of Fiano. After it was pressed to tank it spent a week being
worked on its lees, adding texture and complexity. Fermentation lasted for seven
days and then it was bottled immediately to retain the freshness and purity of fruit.
Tasting Note
Complex stone fruit aromas with delicate undertones of floral and Thai basil notes.
On the palate there is a great depth of flavour, with layers of texture and a long
lasting floral and uplifting finish.
Serving Suggestion
Seafood paella or rich creamy pasta dishes.
