Frankland Estate 'Estate' Shiraz 2018

2018 was one of the great vintages in the last 30 years for the region, particularly for Shiraz. The complexity of this wine no doubt comes from the three clones of Shiraz now grown in the estate vineyards and the seven small parcels used for this Shiraz.

More Information

2018 was one of the great vintages in the last 30 years for the region, particularly for Shiraz. The complexity of this wine no doubt comes from the three clones of Shiraz now grown in the estate vineyards and the seven small parcels used for this Shiraz (making up 93.4% of the wine), supported by the use of small additions of Touriga Nacional (3.7%), Mourvèdre (1.3%), Marsanne (1.2%) and Malbec (0.4%).

Floral notes and spice rise from the glass alluding to a Shiraz of elegance and depth. The nose leads to a Shiraz with medium weight and delicacy on the palate yet with substantial depth of flavour and complexity. Spice and ironstone earthiness sit well along the bright fruits of plum and red currant that give the wine a juiciness and approachability while having great length and freshness.

"Open-fermented, extended maceration, 14 months’ maturation in French puncheons. The deep purple colour sets the scene for a powerful, fragrant wine with poached spiced plum and ripe tannins, the French oak beating a delicate tattoo on the finish." 95pts -  James Halliday - The Australian 

"Lovely Shiraz, bit of a treat. Graphite, clove, dark chocolate and ripe black cherry. Both dry and generous at once. Sweet-fruited and savoury. Nuanced. Flows effortlessly but there’s tannin here too. Medium-weight in a good way. All those things." 93pts - Campbell Mattinson - WineFront
