This is a really serious (and seriously delicious!) wine – it over-delivers in terms of elegance and pure flavour….but that’s no surprise – Frankland Estate have been quietly producing great wines for decades.
It opens with notes of violet, mulberry and blackcurrant. Really dark fruited, but juicy – such an elegant wine, very pure and supple. The oak is but a framework for the dark fruit flavours to glide across the palate before the gravelly tannins kick in and tell you what it’s all about. Serious wine, but with enough fruit to really make it approachable.
Great stuff – a whole heap of bang for your buck!
