Winery/Brand: Wild Fox


Nice plum fruit nose with hints of dark chocolate, on the palate there is warm Christmas cake spice with a minty character and some toffee on the finish. Good length and soft tannins mean this wine is drinking really well at the moment. Try with kangaroo fillet.

"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.
