FOX GORDON BY GEORGE 2014Fox Gordon
Fox Gordon began over a long lunch in 2001 when renowned winemaker Tash Mooney (ex Penfolds & Lindemans) and her old friends and colleagues Sam Atkins and David Cumming and their wives Ra Atkins, née Fox and Jane Gordon decided to realise a long held dream to form a family run company and make great wine together from two of the finest regions in South Australia – the Barossa Valley and the Adelaide Hills.
Now into its ninth vintage, Fox Gordon has accumulated considerable awards and trophies in Australia. Fox Gordon aims to make contemporary, premium wine that stands amongst the best both nationally and internationally.
In her own words Tash says: “There are no surprises with our wines. You know exactly what your getting – top quality Barossa and Adelaide Hills reds and whites. It’s been bloody hard work at times but nothing a good old drink can’t fix, and we’ve loved every minute of it.”
60% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Barossa Valley and 40% Tempranillo from Adelaide Hills – not a blend you’ll come across very often (especially in Australia!)
