Product Description

Frankland River arguably produces some of the best Shiraz in Australia.  This wine is a careful blend of Shiraz sourced from the best, low yielding vineyards in the region.  The tarry, Rhone-like structure of Frankland Shiraz is a product of the regions warm days with cool nights, low rainfall and “mean” gravely soils.  The individual parcels of fruit were “cold-soaked” prior to fermentation with specific yeasts isolated from the best Rhone vineyards.  This pre-ferment treatment permits a gentler extraction of tannins, whilst enhancing the fruit intensity.
The wine then underwent malolactic fermentation and 18 months maturation in an equal mix of new and one-year old French oak barriques.
A dense, inky crimson colour with purple hues.
A rich, brooding nose of liquorice, mocha, and spicy black pepper.
Smooth, velvety textures are enhanced by elegant French oak spice and balanced by a subtle acid length.
The flavours are rich and complex with ripe plums and blackberry complemented by more sophisticated dark chocolate, aniseed and coffee.
The wines balance and structure, combined with the use of Screw cap technology, suggest that it will improve with up to 10 years careful cellaring.
