Impressive is the 1999 Shiraz Reserve, a 1,100-case cuvee aged 14 months in new American oak. The wine is a dense purple color, with a sweet, almost blackberry liqueur nose, and smoke, licorice, and oak in the background. Jammy and rich, with huge body, good purity, adequate acidity, and a long finish, this is an impressive, surprisingly large-scaled 1999.

Dense, deep and seductive for its plush texture and massive blackberry, blueberry and plum flavors--all of which pull together on the generous finish.

About This Producer


When the Watts family bought the 32 hectare Fox Creek Vineyard property in 1984, they were advised against planting vines as the soils in that area of McLaren Vale were composed of dense and heavy clay. The property had previously been used for growing barley and grazing sheep. Undeterred by the sceptics, they selected and planted fine quality cuttings and nurtured the young vines to fruition. Their labors bore fruit - extraordinarily high quality fruit - that was lovingly converted into wines of supreme quality. Under the skilled guidance of the winemakers, Fox Creek wines have achieved regional, national, and international acclaim and are now enjoyed around the world.
