Pretty Good

Fox Creek Reserve Shiraz is a vibrantly hued wine which displays a deep purple colour throughout the glass. The luxurious bouquet exhibits scintillating aromas of plum, strawberry, rhubarb, liquorice and red cherry. Lively scents of dark chocolate, clove, nutmeg and cinnamon combine with light hints of blueberries, violets and buttered toast to enhance the fragrant nose. The plush and intense palate is rife with juicy flavours of plums, raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, red cherries and cream. Dark chocolate and roast nut characters integrate with a firm layer of vibrant acidity and grape tannins to end the wine in a lengthy and structured finish. This wonderful Shiraz can be cellared for up to 16 years to develop a softer and richer flavour profile. It can be served either on its own, or enjoyed with grilled salmon, swordfish steaks and pasta.
