Intense plummy aroma complexed with a refreshing herbal undertone. A big generous palate, well weighted and balanced. Plummy fruit upfront with coffee chocolate flavours that give it a nice firm tannin finish.
Awards, Reviews & Accolades:
"Wild Fox Winery....excellent ambassadors for their area...The reds showed big, bold, clean fruit characters. Merlot may well have a bright future in the Adelaide Plains on this evidence. Outstanding too was the Sauvignon Blanc, debunking the cool climate snobbery which besets our industry."
"08 Merlot - Dark Plum red...Coffee, chocolate ripe plums/prunes...Toffee, 'fruit cake' varietal palate. Really a good expression of the variety. Good length, again, Christmas pudding...Soft tannins, cherry finish-good food wine with pork or meat cooked with red fruit sauces. For example;Pork with marinated plums or Kangaroo with red currant reduction.Probably your best wine 17/20 Silver." Paul Le Lacheur - National Wine judge and freelance journalist.
