A ubiquitous treasure, Frankland Estate is a family owned and operated boutique winery, buried deep in the heart of Western Australia’s most isolated wine region. Located 250km east of Margaret River and inland from the wild and picturesque Great Southern coastline, Frankland Estate was established in 1988 by Barrie Smith and Judi Cullam. Today they are joined by their children Elizabeth and Hunter and a small, yet hardworking and enthusiastic team to produce high quality flavoursome wines.
The Frankland Estate winery are committed to sustainable farming, organic viticulture, carefully nurturing the health of the soils in our vineyard, and only taking from the land as much as what can later be replaced by natural processes. The appreciation for the environment ensures they continue to grow with their land in accordance to the cycles of nature.
This label is comprised of 99% Shiraz and 1% Voignier. Bright juicy fruit and a lifted integration of black pepper, plum and spice notes. Creamy texture and subtle oak provides a poised finish. The tiny addition of viognier with vibrant shiraz fruit notes gives aromatic lift and subtle texture which makes the wine more approachable in its youth. Good acidity and fine tannins combine to create a soft finishing. Highly recommended!
