2018 Frankland River Shiraz

West Cape Howe WinesVintage Description:

Shiraz from Frankland River is arguably our strongest variety from this isolated, but super consistent sub-region of the fabulous Great Southern. Coupling this with it being one of the best seasons in decades means we think it’s a pretty handy wine.

Winemaking Information:All this Shiraz was harvested in late March, with 7% finishing its ferment in new oak barriques and kept on its yeast lees for added complexity.
Fruit Source:Frankland River
Colour:A deep, dark and rich crimsony red.
Aroma:Has aromas of sweet, vibrant red fruits and generous, dark brooding plum fruit characters, with just a hint of pepperiness and rich beetroot earthiness.
Palate:Very well flavoured as expected from Frankland fruit; it has loads of rich and vibrant red fruit characters along with hints of crushed violets. The intense plum fruit flavours are well integrated and beautifully balanced by the powdery tannins which give great structure to the wine.
