First produced in 2013 Postmaster GSM is a luscious, elegant, mid-weight wine that displays great flavour and balance, with a medium bodied nature that complements our food, lifestyle and climate. Grenache thrives in McLaren Vale’s warm maritime climate and diverse soil structure where it develops rich, balanced fruit flavour. Traditionally grown for producing fortified wines, the old vineyards contribute flavours and complexity that cannot be matched by younger vines.
Dr Jim Watts, a specialist and professor of surgery and his wife, (registered nurse) Helen began the Fox Creek story in 1984. They purchased a 32 hectare farming property in McLaren Vale and went about planting vines on the black clay soils. The Fox Creek ethic has always been based on respect for the land, a belief in using sustainable practices and a focus on producing outstanding wines in the vineyard. Their philosophy is to produce exceptionally high quality wines characteristic of the McLaren Vale region. Fox Creek implements many practices through their wine production to minimize long term enviormental impacts. Their cartons are made from recycable materials and all packaging elements (glass, caps, boxes & labels) are recycable. Rainwater is collected and stored in watertanks for winery use and winery wastewater is treated onsite.
