Our Notes

 Juicy juicy juicy! Raspberry, mostly, but blackcurrant, too, and peppery spice teaming up with supple tannin to back it all up. Sort of a savoury biscuity thing happening, too. The “Postmaster” GSM, Fox Creek call it, and it certainly delivers. 

Winemakers Comments

First produced in 2013 Postmaster GSM is a luscious, elegant, mid-weight wine that displays great flavour and balance, with a medium bodied nature that complements our food, lifestyle and climate. Grenache thrives in McLaren Vale’s warm maritime climate and diverse soil structure where it develops rich, balanced fruit flavour. Traditionally grown for producing fortified wines, the old vineyards contribute flavours and complexity that cannot be matched by younger vines.

Combined with the rich, ripe Shiraz and earthy, textural Mourvèdre, the combination of flavours and tannins deliver exotic gamey notes along with elegance, structure and longevity to the final blend. The 70-year-old Shiraz batch is matured in 2, 3 and 4-year-old French and American oak, barrels were selected for their spice, character and sweet tannin profiles. The 60 and 80-year-old Grenache is matured in older French and American puncheons and selected for the perfumed lift and tannin elegance and power. The Mourvèdre spends time in new, 1 and 2-year-old French and American oak puncheons and was selected for its earthy texture and ability to tie the blend together.

About the Winemaker

When partners Helen and Dr Jim Watts purchased the vineyards (with, yes, a creek and a number of foxes) that eventually formed the core of Fox Creek, they were advised that the area’s black clay soils were unsuitable for winemaking.

The gradual growth of the Fox Creek project – from contract winemaking to a private label and a host of awards and recognitions, and internationally as exporting began in earnest – has well and truly proven that wrong.
