Overview

The Princess' frame isn't weighty but, rather, seductively full in all the right places. She charms with bursts of bright nectarine, melon and pine nut, yet is able to maintain natural poise and composure whilst reigning over her region.

Expert Reviews

A multi-talented performer that captures the paradox of zesty crunch, perfumed freshness, textural depth and well-proportioned body all in one glass. This makes for a particularly versatile style from this single site in the Mount Lofty Ranges, the perfect partner to all manner of Asian fusion cuisine. It’s filled with lovely complexity of lifted apple blossom, custard apple, nashi pear and grapefruit zest. Concentrated, fruitful, complete and yet beautifully refined, and ready to go. Rating 93 - Tyson Stelzer, Wine Taste Weekly (JUN/2013)

"Something for those who enjoy a bit of New World idiosyncracy, for Fiano is hardly a staple grape of Australia. Made using low sulphur and natural yeasts, this is laced with a delightful floral quality, is round and textured, and displays hints of melon and grapefruit." 90+ points ('Must Try'' Weekday White Wine) Decanter May 2014

Aroma

Lemon, pineapple, nectarine and grapefruit. In Italy it is said Fiano is reminiscent to ‘Pesto in a bottle’ and the Princess possesses pine nut, garlic and basil characters.

Palate

Nectarine, white peach, tropical fruit, zesty lemon. Alluring and rich, the Princess isn’t weighty but rather seductively full in all the right places.

Food Matching

Pan-fried white fish fillets, caramelized scallops, fresh crab and king prawns, alternatively Saltimbocca with a twist, chicken, goats cheese and fresh tarragon, wrapped in prosciutto packages and baked.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

James Halliday 5 Red Star rated Winery (Australian Wine Companion 2015)

Fox Gordon was founded in 2000 to allow the owners to live the dream of producing, marketing and selling premium wines from the Barossa Valley and Adelaide Hills after learning their trade working in some of Australia's largest wine companies.

The founders, Sam and Rachel Atkins (nee Fox), David Cumming, Jane Gordon and Natasha Mooney wanted to produce great wines that provide outstanding value for money under a brand that would offer both integrity and beauty. Importantly Fox Gordon was formed with a long term vision to take necessary time to achieve the founders' goals and dreams.

The Fox Gordon name and logo celebrates the founding women in the company, using Rachel and Jane's surnames to create 'Fox Gordon' and the stylised images of Rachel and Tash to produce the now highly recognisable logo. All the individual wines and sub-brands would carry the name of family and friends.

Building a wine company of real integrity takes enormous commitment, investment, belief, passion and time and the owners of Fox Gordon would not have it any other way.
