Fox Creek, JSM, 2012
JSM is named after decorated army Captain, James Stanley Malpas who was born in Willunga in 1873. His family lived in what is now Fox Creeks Cellar Door cottage. James, the youngest son of Henry and Mary Malpas made his mark early. In 1891 at the age of 18, he carved his initials in the stone lintel above the front door. James studied at Roseworthy Agricultural College where he graduated as a Gold Medalist. In 1915 he enlisted in the Australian Imperial Force (AIF) and was posted to Gallipoli where he was promoted to Captain.
James was awarded the Military Cross for ‘conspicuous gallantry in action’ after displaying great resourcefulness and dash in getting his company out of an almost impossible position in the trenches in Gallipoli.
A fruit driven mid palate is laden with red cherry, plums and raspberries. The wine has a long, crisp and refreshing finish due to the Cabernets firm and youthful grape tannin framed with elegant and spicy oak. A great drinking wine of complexity and substance.
