Frankland Estate Shiraz 2016
97% Shiraz and 3% Viognier grown on the family’s estate vineyard. This wine was fermented as long and slowly as possible, at temperatures not exceeding 30 degrees in open tanks that allowed the cap to be worked by plunging and gentle pumping over. Extended maceration followed completion of the ferment to allow optimal colour, flavour and tannin extraction. It was aged for 18 months in 500-litre French oak puncheons. Shows fresh lifted aromas of plums and cherries with black pepper and spice. Earthy savoury hints combine seamlessly with subtle oak flavours. Dried herbs and spice on the palate is balanced with blueberry and a soft, creamy, textured palate.
James Halliday – Bright, full crimson-purple; the variety and the terroir seek to impose each one's stamp over the other, both failing in their attempt, the perfect win-win outcome. Blackberry fruit, spice and black pepper lead the way on the bouquet and medium-bodied palate alike, French oak (subtle) and tannins (ripe, but fine) completing a great portrait of cool-grown shiraz. 95 points. Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion 2018
