Fox Gordon ‘By George’ Tempranillo

Wine: Fox Gordon ‘By George’ Tempranillo

Producer: Fox Gordon

Country: Australia

Region: South Australia / Adelaide Hills

Vintage: 2017

Style: Red

Blend: Tempranillo 100%

ABV: 14.%

Size: 75cl

 

Notes: A round & supple wine using this traditionally Spanish variety which delivers notes of fragrant red summer fruits, complemented by hints of gorgeous spice & subtle dark chocolate notes. A wine that is delightful & vibrant, yet sophisticated.

The grapes were fermented for 10 days & then racked to tank for two weeks of lees work, to build texture & finish fermentation. The young wine was then aged in French oak puncheons imparting subtle oak character to the wine while still retaining the vibrancy of the fruit.

Fox Gordon’s vineyards are situated on 60 hectares of breath-taking terroir at Kuitpo Forest in the Adelaide Hills & overlooking the world famous McLaren Vale. Planted at altitude, the grapes are imbued with lovely cool-climate characteristics. The fruit for this wine is picked from an old single trellised vineyard, where the vines produce large plump berries.

 

Producer Info: Fox Gordon is a family run winery specialising in contemporary, premium & award-winning wines from the Barossa Valley & Adelaide Hills. From a diverse selection of grape varieties, each bottle is the ultimate fusion of wine & fashion. Made using the Fox Gordon philosophy of low input & low yield to give maximum flavour, while preserving the inherent qualities of the fruit & the site; these stylish wines are modern, bright & vibrant. Fox Gordon has been named a five star winery by James Halliday six years in a row.
