  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • We source a single vineyard in the Frankland River Region for this wine. This region is perfectly suited to producing many red and white varieties due to its continental climate combined with low vigour and moderate ripening conditions. We have chosen this particular vineyard for its ability to produce typical Frankland River Shiraz, which as a result of being a cool climate, is intense in colour with ripe flavours yet is elegant in style and structure. As we source a number of parcels of Shiraz from this vineyard a section of the vineyard is earmarked for our Reserve batch and kept aside for this particular wine.

    The grapes where harvested during the cool of the night to ensure quality was maintained. A cool fermentation took place in static fermenters and gentle extraction of colour and flavour was achieved over a two week period. After primary ferment the wine was gently pressed off skins to a mix of new, second use and third use larger format French oak barrels. After 18 months maturation in barrel the wine was blended prior to bottling.

    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    A rich bouquet with aromas of plum, cherry and hints of mocha and spice. The palate is full of rich dark berries and licorice on a generous silky smooth finish.

    Plenty of rich earth and five-spice coming through on the nose, to color the aromas of dried strawberries and herbs. Soft and quite milky on the palate with a round texture and impression. Drink now.
