Notes Sourced from Fox Creek Wines appearance bouquet palate winemaking ageing potential Other Reviews...
Very deep red/back with crimson edges.
The nose offers multiple levels of complexity with sweet blackberry, chocolate, licorice and vanilla evident complemented by savoury well-balanced oak.
Very rich powerful entry of blackberry with savoury spice, licorice and dark chocolate filling out the mid palate, leading to a long finish balanced by well integrated tannin structure of great depth.
The fruit for the 2002 Reserve Shiraz was primarily sourced from our 'Willows Block' at Fox Creek and harvested between 14.2° and 14.8° Baumé. Fermentation on skins was for 8 days with a proportion of the wine (40%) completing fermentation in new American (70%) and French (30%) oak. The wine was matured for 15 months in new and 1 year old American and French oak. During this time the wine was racked 3 times, allowing us to assess the quality of the wine and fine-tune our oak regime.
This wine, if cellared correctly, will drink well up to 2015 reflecting the full-bodied structure of the best wines made in the cool summer of 2002. This wine will repay decanting up to 2 hours prior to consumption.
Firm, long and very smooth
