James Halliday – Sourced from the estate’s Isolation Ridge vineyard. A cabernet franc-led blend and showing it, via vibrant redder cherry and mulberry-like aromas, concentrated by sympatico oak. It all comes into focus on the palate; intense yet lifted, energetic and mineral. Even tannins add to an impressive complexity and lingering finish. Tony Love Published 13 August 2021

About This Wine

Cabernet Franc (66%), Malbec (27%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (11%). All three varieties used in the blend were dry-grown on mature vines in the Isolation Ridge Vineyard at Frankland Estate. The vineyard sits on an undulating northern and eastern facing slope on ancient duplex soils of gravel and loam over a clay sub-soil. It is farmed using organic viticultural practices (certified organic in 2010) and this is reflected in the depth and concentration of fruit flavours. The vines are trained on a combination of Scott Henry Trellis system and vertical shoot attention to detail during the growing season encourages flavour development and promotes balance in the wine. Each variety was fermented separately as slowly as possible at temperatures not exceeding 27°C. Open fermentation tanks facilitated working the cap with gentle plunging and pumping over. After fermentation, an extended maceration period allowed desired colour, flavour and tannin extraction. The component wines were blended on completion of the malolactic fermentation and then aged in French oak for 15 months. Deep crimson red with purple hues. The nose shows vanilla, plum, currants and cherry. In the mouth it's fresh and bright, showing freshness and bright sweet fruit, red-berries, plum and lifted floral notes. The tightly woven palate has fine grained gravelly tannins, slight mocha and savoury earthy notes. The palate is flavoursome and persistent.
