Fox Gordon By George Cabernet Tempranillo 2017

Fox Gordon By George Cabernet Sauvignon Tempranillo blend is a red wine that is sure to delight you. This wine is full of ripe blackcurrant and liquorice flavours with a herbaceous and earthy background. It's a real delight when served with vel or steak and kidney pie but be careful as at 14% it can creep up on you.

“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.

Vineyard

The Cabernet vines are 23 years old and the Tempranillo vines are 13 years old. Good Cabernet is difficult to find in the Barossa, however, Fox Gordon has sourced four brilliant sites in the last 20 years and this comes from one of them.

Winemaking

The By George is characterised by two things. Firstly, the fruit was co-fermented for ten days and then racked to tank for two weeks of lees work, to build texture and finish ferment. Secondly, large format, older barrels were used, which gives perfect oak character to the wine while still keeping the fruit fresh. 10% went into new French oak barrels.

Tasting Note

The Fox Gordon By George Cabernet Tempranillo with it's fragrant red summer fruits and notes of wild herbs are first noticeable followed by the clean, ripe nuances ofjuicy blackcurrants, red liquorice with an earthy hint. Lovely fine tannins thanks to the Cabernet highlighted by the herbal notes from the cool climate Tempranillo.

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.
