Frankland Estate Shiraz 2020


Shiraz has been a main player with Frankland Estate almost from the get go and this is one of the very best under this label. Okay, the vintage was excellent. But the approach to producing a wine that is truly reflective of place has been a resounding success. On the nose and palate, you get that ironstone ferrous intrigue that comes directly from this ancient soil. The palate is smoothly integrated with a deft use of oak and outstanding tannin management. The balance between the sweet medium weight fruit and those ironstone characters is what really make this wine exceptional.
