Fox Gordon Eight Uncles ShirazWhile the main course was rendered inedible by my over-enthusiastic reheating the wine flowed copiously and helped wash the burnt flavours from the mouth. This deep and plush red was a star. You can read all on the culinary disaster at Slashfood.
Wine Tasting Note: Fox Gordon Eight Uncles Shiraz, 2003, Barossa Valley, Australia.
Purchased at Oddbins for £12.49.
A lovely drop, rich full and gently spicy. The grapes are sourced from three individual vineyards combining into a mulberry, plums and spice wonder. Full-bodied and balanced. The second vintage release of this label with 900 cases made. Alcohol 14.5%. The previous vintage, 2002, was my entry for Wine Blogging Wednesday back in November 2004.
