Fox Creek VerdelhoRegular price $22.00
|Aroma & Palate||Pineapple, banana, bursting acidity|
|Style||Vibrant & tropical|
A vibrantly tropical and unapologetically acidic drop fresh from the talented bunch at recurring Secret Bottle favourites Fox Creek.
Pineapple and plantain leap out of a body savoury enough that the McLaren Vale maritime air reads as mixed nuts or trail mix. Pours straw yellow. Creamy, tangy, zesty and then some.
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.
