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.
Vineyard
The Fox Gordon estate vineyards are located in the Adelaide Hills, overlooking McLaren
Vale. Nestled in a natural amphitheatre, the vines are planted at an elevation of 380
metres above sea level, where cooling breezes from the ocean less than 18 kilometres
away influences the microclimate. The vines are approximately 14 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.
