Fox Creek Vixen Sparkling Shiraz NV

McLaren Vale, South Australia   |    750ml   |    13.5%
Fox Creek's Vixen has gained a reputation as one of Australia's most consistent sparkling reds. Fox Creek describes this intense blend of Shiraz and Cabernet Franc as 'liquid Blackforest Cake', which we think sums it up pretty accurately. It oozes opulent blackberry, licorice and chocolate flavours and has a lingering semi-dry finish.

"A red sparkling wine made using a blend of shiraz and cabernet franc. It’s been a reliable performer for a number of years now. You almost have to like a spot of port to like this – it’s sweet and syrupy. That said, because of the bubbles, it’s a lot lighter across your tongue and a lot easier to drink in volume than port – again, dangerously so. It tastes of chocolate and blackberry with hints of game pie and is an excellent introduction to the charms of a sparkling red. Rated: 88 Points Alcohol : 13.5% Price: $22.50 Closure : Cork Drink : 2009 - 2011"- Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front.

"Well put together sparkling red, with abundant dark berry fruit, dark chocolate and well-controlled dosage."- James Halliday,

It all began when a group of medicos decided to realise a lifelong passion - creating a wine from bare earth and sunshine. The earth was found at McLaren Vale, one of South Australia's premier wine regions, renowned worldwide for its Shiraz and other red wines. The sunshine was free. Between them and their families Fox Creek Wines was born and they could not have even guessed what a success their venture would be. The family owned winery is conveniently located 45 kilometres south of Adelaide, between the villages of McLaren Vale and Willunga on the Fleurieu Peninsula. Visitors are always welcome at our cosy nineteenth century stone Cellar Door cottage where they can taste the award winning wines whilst enjoying one of the bi-monthly art exhibitions. Stay a little longer and relax in the beautiful gardens amongst ancient eucalypt and olive trees with one of our cheese platters and a glass of wine.

"Vibrant plum with fine sparkling bead. On the nose are aromas of lifted black cherry, dark chocolate, musk and mocha. A powerful wine rich and soft in texture. The silky palate oozes sweet mixed berry conserve, ‘rum and raisin’, white chocolate and spicy vanillin oak finished with a balanced explosion of spice, crisp acid and soft elegant tannin length. A blend of selected components from various vintages, blended to achieve our classic Vixen style, it is made from 81% Shiraz, 10% Cabernet Franc and 9% Cabernet Sauvignon. The bead on the wine is fine and persistent, indicative of its high quality."- Notes from Fox Creek.
