The cool climate and gravelly loam soils of Western Australia's Frankland River region is ideally suited to making intense, elegantly structured wines.
Vintage: A dry Winter and fleeting Spring was followed by a warm growing season with welcome rainfall in December and January leading to full, healthy canopies enabling excellent yields and great flavour development.
Colour: Deep crimson with ruby flecks
Palate: Rich flavours of cassis, blueberry and chocolate lead to a medium body with leafy, tobacco like layers and fine grained, supple tannins.
Cellaring: Ready to enjoy now, although will gain complexity over the next three to five years with careful cellaring.
