Fox Creek JSM Shiraz Cabernet Cabernet Franc 2016
The Fox Creek "James Stanley Malpas" JSM is a wine styled to be food friendly. The blend in this wine is approximately 77% Shiraz, 17% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Cabernet Franc. Shiraz components for the blend were selected for fruit richness and elegance. Careful cellaring for 2 to 8 years will give a softer more complex wine.
A rich, full flavoured front and mid palate is laden with blackberry, red cherry, plums and blackcurrant layered with hints of strawberry and vanilla cream, all interlaced with rich toasty oak and dark chocolate. The wines luscious fruit is framed by long textural Cabernet tannins integrated with balanced and elegant oak tannins. A great drinking wine of complexity and substance
