The Red Baron is enjoying continued success at Fox Creek. This suave character has taken control of some of our best Shiraz vineyards in McLaren Vale as the original ‘Red Baron’ took control of the skies. Like the wine, he is rich in character, distinctive and silky smooth and is guaranteed to woo any nearby vixen.
Showcasing the true essence of McLaren Vale wine making, the Red Baron Shiraz is a great example of what has made this region stand out. Full bodied with balanced oak, the Red Baron Shiraz is a real crowd pleaser, showing great balance and length of flavour.
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.
