Fox Creek Vixen Sparkling Shiraz Cabernet NV

Fox Creek Vixen Sparkling Shiraz Cabernet 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. First produced in 1997 and often described as a black forest gateau in a glass, it is almost the perfect descriptor for this rich, powerful and luscious Sparkling Red that is one of the cornerstones of Fox Creek’s portfolio.

The powerful fruit flavour profile of their Shiraz and rich structural tannins of the Cabernet Sauvignon, complemented by the focus and herbal lift of the Cabernet Franc, combine to give the wine an exquisite balance and drinkability.

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.
