From perhaps the most pristine vineyard site on the planet comes this delicious blend of Shiraz (95%) and Viognier (5%). A remarkably complete, made all the more amazing given that is sees no oak. Pure fruit delights the palate, but the wine has got so much more going on. Hints of spice, pepper, even clove notes add to the wines charm. Velvety and delicious all the way to the long finish. Sensational wine for the money.
Frankland Estate was established by Barrie Smith and Judi Cullam in 1988. The Isolation Ridge vineyard was developed on part of a 3000 acre property in the Frankland River region on which the family has run a wool growing enterprise since 1974. Today the family continue to have significant wool-growing interests and manages a flock of some 10, 000 merinos. The decision to diversify their farming interests from wool into wine was inspired, in part, by a tour of French vineyards Barrie and Judi undertook in 1985. They returned to France in 1990 and 1993 to gain further experience in the industry by working vintages at Chateau Senejac in Bordeaux. As a result, winemaking philosophies at Frankland Estate have been considerably influenced by the approach used in Bordeaux. A new winery was completed in time for the 1993 vintage.
