Tasting Notes

Elegant and restrained this wine delivers aromas of spice, leather, bramble and brooding dark fruits with charming complexity. The palate is well structured, with tight tannins and a warming embrace of boysenberry and plum, underpinned by wonderfully integrated spice through to a deliciously long finish.

About the Winery

Fox Gordon was started in 2000 by Sam Atkins to create premium wines from Adelaide Hills that are known for their integrity and beauty.

The Atkins family, of which Sam is a member, are involved in the business, agriculture and wine-making. Their success can be attributed to their respect for nature, their support for the community and their confidence in the future. The Atkins joined Adelaide’s farming community in the 1920s and became important stakeholders in it. They continue their traditions over a century and frame them with the required business and market acumen and understanding.
