  • THE BRIEF
  • Established in 1996, the highly acclaimed Frogmore Creek Wines are produced in the genuine cool-climate of southern Tasmania, where the grapes benefit from a long growing season amongst the pristine natural environment. These slowly-ripened grapes develop pure fruit flavours, fresh natural acidity and are perfect for making world class cool-climate wines. Combine this with Frogmore Creek's purist approach to winemaking and their philosophy of environmental sustainability, and the result? A seriously good wine.

  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • A 48-hour pre-ferment soak was followed by inoculation and fermentation in fermenters. Pressed, and then transfer into French oak for spontaneous Malo lactic ferment before racking off lees and further barrel maturation.

    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    Dark colour. Ripe, rich style. Fresh, concentrated with great intensity. A long ageing wine.

    HUON HOOKE - THE REAL REVIEW


    Bright, medium to full red-purple colour. Charming cherry fruit-driven aromas, fresh and bright with a hint of smokiness; the palate tight and firm and slightly tannin-bitter from cold temperature. It needs food or warming up. Good potential, quite firm and youthful at this juncture.

    MIKE BENNIE - THE WINE FRONT


    Spicy scents, red cherry, whiff of cranberry too. Pleasing, gentle start. Crisp texture and find, satiny tannins, a little pinched with acidity to close but feels fresh and invigorating as a style. Some clove marches in, sappy cherry to taste, good length too. A little sense of pinot noir 101 but has charm.
