Fox Gordon Eight Uncles Shiraz 2017

The Eight Uncles Shiraz is an elegent and restrained Shiraz, This is unusual for the Barossa which is a region renouned for it's bold and brash red wines. This Shiraz is velvety soft and full of delightful primary fruits with a hint of spice and pepper.

“There are no surprises with our wines. You know exactly what you're getting - top quality Barossa and Adelaide Hills reds and whites,' says Fox Gordon's winemaker Tash Mooney. And she's spot on. These are contemporary and premium wines which are all made using the Fox Gordon philosophy of low input and low yield to give maximum flavour and preserve the inherent qualities of fruit and site. “If the fruit speaks for itself, the winemaker's job is much simpler,' says Tash.

Vintage

2013 had a good growing season, with a wet winter and a wet spring so there was a lot of moisture in the soil when the heat hit in early February. Picked early in February, the Shiraz had lots of bright red fruit flavours.

Vineyard

The majority of the fruit is grown in the subregions of Greenock and Bethany in the Barossa, with vines of up to 20 years old. The addition of some fruit from a young vineyard grown in the Eden Valley, adds vibrancy.

Winemaking

The vineyards are vinified separately and the yeast used depends on the fruit characters. Two main cultured yeasts are used, one for warmer ferments and one for cooler ferments depending on what best suits the vineyard. The wine was fermented for over ten days in stainless steel and was then pressed to 225 litre oak barrels for 16 months in total. Gently filtered prior to bottling.

Tasting Note

Winemaker Tash Mooney is known for her elegance and restraint in her red wines despite their location in the Barossa Valley. Eight Uncles is all about primary fruits - plums, damson and cherries with a hint of mocha and peppery spice. The smooth velevety tannins add to its appeal with an unusually vibrant finish.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
