History of Fox Creek began from the moment when Jim and Helen Watts in 1984 purchased 32 acres of land in Sun Valley McLaren. Despite the fact that many tried to dissuade them from ideas to break the vineyards here, they went after his dream and thanks to the hard work and professional approach created a wonderful wine, which today are the owners of gold medals at many international competitions.
The mild climate of the Valley McLaren is very similar to the Mediterranean coast. Due to the proximity of the ocean is never cold, and almost the entire year (except the winter months) is warm and dry weather, which protects the vines from disease. Among a lot of attention is given to methods of biodynamics, particularly for pest control are used, some species of predatory insects and birds to attract around which the vines are planted trees specifically. Fox Creek is practicing the most harmless to the environment vine cultivation techniques and tries to minimize the use of chemicals that allows you to create eco-friendly wines of the highest quality.
One of them is a wonderful duo Cabernet Merlot 2006. Due to the fact that the blend is dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine shows good tannic framework that allows it to develop for 5 years or more. Merlot, in turn, gives him a rich fruity shades, as well as the softness and depth. Each of the grapes collected and vinified separately, and Cabernet aged 2-3 hletny barrels of American and French oak, and Merlot only 2 hletny French oak. Term aging of wine is 20 months.
