Frankland Estate Isolation Ridge Syrah 2022


A wine that shows the evolution of both style and quality in this now well-established WA Syrah. It now has the addition of clone 470 to the original Houghton clone from when it was planted in 1988. A small amount of Viognier and Mourvèdre are also used. The wine was matured for 14 months in 3500-litre French Oak foudre and a few additional 500-litre puncheons. This is an exciting development as the wine has become more elegant and stylish while gaining complexity and better structural tannin profile. It’s medium bodied with beautifully expressive red fruits and a little spice and black pepper. Outstanding.

Variety: Red Wine, Syrah
