The Frankland River wine growing region has produced some of the best examples of Shiraz made in Western Australia. The wine is brilliant, deep dark red w a luminous purple hue. The bouquet, brooding, intense and complex aromatics of blueberry, mulberry and boysenberry with hints of black pepper, aniseed, cinnamon and cola. Subtle vanillin and brioche pastry notes derived from French oak maturation complete the picture.
The silky palate is richly flavoured, concentrated and precise. Intense dark berry fruits with clove and cardamom spices and hints of mocha. Soft acid and a very fine but firm tannin structure carry the rich mid palate giving persistence and longevity.
