  • TASTING NOTE: "Wonderful rosy perfume, dried cranberry, redcurrant, chocolate and spice, a slight gum leafiness. Medium-bodied, gravelly tannin, some dried herb and subtle earthiness, fine brick dust tannin, freshness in with the sweet red fruits, and a long firm finish, black olive in the aftertaste. A wonderful expression of Franc." 94 Points - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front 
  • ABOUT THE WINE: Cabernet Franc for this wine was sourced from 1988 plantings in the Isolation Ridge vineyard at Frankland Estate. The vineyard sits on an undulating northern and eastern facing slope on ancient duplex soils of ironstone gravel and loam over a clay sub-soil. It is certified organic farmed since 2009 and this is reflected in the depth and concentration of fruit flavours. Fruit was harvested in ideal conditions and fermented in shallow stainless steel open fermenters. The fruit is hand plunged to gently extract the tannin, keep the ferment as even as possible and maintain fruit purity. The wine is pressed off and aged on lees in 500L French oak puncheons and 1500L foudre for 10 months before bottling.
  • ABOUT THE PRODUCER: In a 1955 study of potential grape growing sites, renowned Californian viticulturalist Dr Harold Olmo identified Frankland River as one of the most promising prospects in Australia. The wines of Frankland Estate prove he was right. Founded in 1988 by Judi Cullam and Barrie Smith, this is indisputably one of the nation's most important and consistent cool climate producers. Since 2010, second-generation winemaker Hunter Smith has been joined in the winery by brother-in-law Brian Kent. Hunter and Brian have re-focused on every detail of their organically farmed vineyard and winery operation, with their entire suite of wines (Estate, Single Vineyard and flagship Smith-Cullam wines) garnering even more attention for this benchmark Great Southern producer.
