Fox Creek ‘Reserve’ Shiraz 2000 (1500ml Magnum)
“A luscious, long and stylish modern shiraz steeped in musky, spicy aromas of blackberries & plums, black pepper, cloves & cinnamon with an assertive but finely integrated background of smoky fine-grained vanilla oak. Its smooth & chocolatey palate of concentrated, briary fruit & spicy oak finishes with savoury, dark olive notes & minerals, plus a lingering core of black fruits.” – Jeremy Oliver
“Dark colour; opulent, rich & mouthfilling; chocolate, vanilla & mocha provide much of the energy, though there is plenty of blackberry/licorice fruit.” – James Halliday
“Fresh & focused. Brims with plum & blueberry fruit, shaded by licorice & hints of smoke. Finishes round but balanced, with refreshing acidity.” – Wine Spectator
