Fox Creek Fox & Hounds Shiraz Cabernet Sauvigon 2003
Fox creek is a relatively recent story having begun in 1984 and had its first release in 94. This is their entry level Shiraz, If this wine seems cheap that’s because it is—we’ve sourced an amount of great Aussie wines at brilliant prices - and have passed our good fortune straight onto you lucky Samplers.
This is definitely an Aussie Shiraz, with mint and blackcurrant the dominant flavours, however the Cabernet has offered a bramble character. This would be hard to place at ten years old, with bags of fruit and the only hint of it’s age a softened texture and delicately smooth tannin. An absolute steal at this price, this screams barbecue!
