Loaded with blackberry, raspberry and hints of pepper, finishing with a luscious mocha espresso quality.Fox Gordon are contemporary and premium wines which are all made using the philosophy of low input and low yield to give maximum flavour and preserve the inherent qualities of fruit and site.

Those old boys love a good Barossa ShirazGrapes: 100% ShirazRegion: Australia / Barossa ValleyMaker: Tash MooneyNotes: Dark crimson red colour with brooding berry fruits with hints of violet aromas.

Fox Gordon began over a long lunch in 2001 when renowned winemaker Tash Mooney and her old friends and colleagues Sam Atkins and David Cumming and their wives Ra Atkins, nee Fox and Jane Gordon decided to realise a long held dream to form a family run company and make wine together. Despite Sam and David's best attempts to incorporate their names in the brand, 'Atkins Cumming' lacked the ring of 'Fox Gordon' and hence the brand was born, much to the delight of the girls! Now into its sixth vintage, Fox Gordon is recognised as a producer of award winning wines selling to the leading wine markets around the world. A super premium winemaking philosophy is employed, along with relentless attention to detail and endless personal appeal. Read less
