About This Wine
Some of the fruit that goes into this highly awarded wine is sourced from a premium McLaren Vale vineyard planted in 1910, where the bush vines produce some amazing, concentrated flavours. Full of gnarly old vines, this vineyard has been lovingly restored to prosperity by three generations of the original owner, Pasquale Maglieri’s family, who all still live and work on the land he prospered all those years ago. The vineyard site has a northerly aspect with east west planted rows to help protect the fruit from the hot summer sun, alluvial fan clay soil allowed the vines to establish a very deep root system. Access to reliable good quality water provides a measure of drought tolerance for the vines, made notable by the high quality of fruit produced during the recent run of dry vintages. Only made in the best years, in very small quantities with limited allocations, Reserve Shiraz is not only a forerunner in developing the reputation of Fox Creek, but also the McLaren Vale region; showcasing exceptional fruit quality, structure, complexity, balance, elegance, length of flavour and approachability when young with long term cellaring potential.
