Description

First produced in 2014, Three Blocks Cabernet Sauvignon epitomises Cabernet in McLaren Vale—lifted varietal aroma, rich mid palate fruit and complex, well-ripened tannins that show power and structure. Fox Creek used the geology map, clone planting reports and a network of contacts around the region to identify potential vineyards that were suited to achieving the search for more elegant, stylish and varietal Cabernet fruit.

As the name implies, ‘Three Blocks‘ is sourced from three very different premium McLaren Vale vineyards each featuring different soil types; one vineyard has well drained sandy loam soils over silica sand and clay formation, the second, grey sand over North Maslin sandstone and the third featuring black Biscay clay over Pirramimma sandstone. Each vineyard batch was matured in oak specifically matched to these Cabernet vineyards from a range of French coopers. The batches were shifted between different oak types to impart layers of flavour and enhance the structure. The final blend used different percentages of each of the vineyard parcels to achieve the layers of flavour and tannin profile desired.
