Frankland Estate - Rocky Gully Shiraz, Frankland River
99% Shiraz, 1% Viognier.
Cool-climate Shiraz influenced by the Northern Rhône's Côte-Rotie. Notes of plum, black cherry and black pepper from the Shiraz, with the addition of a small amount of Viognier lifts the wine, adding elegance and a delicate aroma of violets. Aged partially in French oak vats to soften tannin and add subtle notes of smoke and clove.
Drink now or cellar for a couple of years to see a fig character emerge.
