Fox Creek McLaren Vale Postmaster GSM 2021


Named as a tribute to the history of the region, this popular red blend is at home in McLaren Vale. This blend is 64% Grenache, 28% Shiraz and 8% Mourvèdre. The Grenache is a mix from 60 and 80-year-old vines, matured in older French and American puncheons. The Shiraz is from 70-year-old vines and spends time in two, three and four-year-old French and American oak. The Mourvèdre is matured in new, one and two-year-old French and American oak puncheons. Deep crimson in colour, the wine has a lovely nose with perfumes of dark fruits, chocolate, cassis, black fruits, leather and warm earth, but also touches of raspberries and cherries. Seamless, plush and with very good length, the construction is impressive. There are early hints of the complexity to come. Soft tannins on the finish, this is a wine for drinking at any time over the next five to eight years. Like this a great deal and great buying at this price.
