"Reserve" Shiraz can confidently be called the best-selling wines in the line of Fox Creek. Since 1994, the wine has already gained recognition far beyond Australia and has been awarded more than 100 gold, silver and bronze medals at the most prestigious competitions around the world.

Hoping to create the perfect wine, Scott and Chris Watts has long experimented with oak before picked up for each terroir your grade. In the end, thanks to a wide combination of American and French oak species of varying degrees of roasting and drying, they got rich, complex and well-balanced wine "Reserve" Shiraz, where oak merely adds to, rather than scores fruity notes of grapes and wine tannic structure.
Harvest each plot is fermented and aged separately, and for aging, which lasts 18 months, using a certain percentage of new barrels and annuals. In the final assemblage "Reserve" Shiraz includes only the best specimens wines that are carefully selected oenologist Fox Creek.
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.
