Wine tasting notes

Appears bright cherry red with a darker plum coloured core. The nose shows licorice and dark fruits, toasty oak with a chocolatey rum & raison aroma. The entry to the palate is soft with a rich solid palate that is typically McLaren Vale, with blackcurrant and stewed plum flavours. The structure is typical of Fox Creek showing ripe fruit tannin with integrated oak complexity.

James Halliday (2020) - 90 pts

A consistently reliable address. Pleasing to see the embrace of this great Sardinian/Ligurian/southern French variety. Lemon rind, quince, a spurt of tonic and a sluice of saline freshness marking an almost sandy, savoury finish. As is the regional tendency, this light-weighted expression has been picked on acidity. I would like to see greater richness and phenolic texture. As it stands, very solid. Ned Goodwin Published 01 February 2021
