Winemaker's Notes

The feral foxes that inhabit the Adelaide Hills region have developed an appetite for grapes as a replacement for their old favorite, the local rabbit, whose numbers have reduced substantially in recent years dues to the Calici virus. The folks at d'Arenberg, however, are unfazed, as the foxes actually act as crop thinners, which ultimately enhances the quality of those grapes too high to reach.

The 2005 Feral Fox is an expressive medium bodied wine with aromas of dark cherries, Satsuma plums, boysenberries, strawberries, and complex spices and fragrant dried herbs. This wine expresses a gorgeous mix of ripe fruits; boysenberry, strawberry, sour cherries and wild plum. The texture is kept in check with elevated acidity and ripe firm tannins.
