This turned out to be a very good vintage in Frankland River, characterised by wines of wonderful elegance and smooth refinement. This is a classic example. Very small volume, which is a shame because it is a wine that really makes a statement about the region. Savoury leafy black fruit off the Justin vineyard in Frankland fills the senses with engaging aromas and deep concentration of flavours. The tannins are still tight but quite soft and the oak is harmoniously snug. Super wine.
