Fox Creek Wines

A McLaren Vale winner from its very first wine.

Back in the early 90s, when Fox Creek Wines released its first vino after a decade of planning and planting, it won Best Wine at the local McLaren Vale Wine Show. Clearly, the winery started with a splash — and lovers of top tipples have been enjoying splashing their glasses with its minimal-intervention drops ever since.

While a range of styles are on the menu here, Fox Creek's selection gravitates towards shiraz, cabernet sauvignon and grenache. They're all made using a light-handling approach, and only with fruit from the region, including some on vines that date back the early 20th century.

At its cellar door, you can taste your way through a flight for between $15–20 per person, and tuck into a platter while you're at it. Look out for top-notch local art in its onsite gallery, too.
