Fox Gordon The Dark Prince Adelaide Hills Nero d'Avola 2017

Opulent yet silky, this delicious wine displays juicy cooked cherries and fresh raspberries with notes of spearmint through to a peppery and full finish.

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. Fox Gordon has been named a five star winery by James Halliday six years in a row.

Vintage

2017 saw a cool spring with a late budburst. The fruit set was excellent, which was followed by a warm summer and ideal ripening conditions, resulting in even ripening and high natural acidity.

Vineyard

The vines are approximately 10 years old and are planted at the top of a hill at an altitude of 480 metres above sea level. It is a rocky site, which suits this very vigorous variety as the site has very little top soil, slowing down the vigour.

Winemaking

The grapes were destemmed and the underwent a cold soak for one week. Fermentation took place in stainless steel and lasted for two weeks. The wine was then transferred to two and three year old French oak barrels for a period of 12 months, adding subtle oak complexity. The wine was bottled unfiltered.

Tasting Note

Opulent yet silky, this delicious wine reveals stunning aromas of deep fruits which are enhanced by notes of Sarsaparilla and lifted floral notes of red roses. Fine supple tannins and a hint of oak lead to a rich finish.
