Frankland Estate Olmo’s Reward Vertical

Frankland Estate Olmo’s Reward is an emerging classic from Western Australia’s Frankland River. The wine honours the contribution of viticulture expert Professor Harold Olmo (University of California), who visited the area in 1955. Olmo concluded that the Upper Frankland River region was ‘equivalent or better than areas, to be found in the present (day) quality districts of Australia or California’. This opinion was also shared by vigneron Jack Mann, who encouraged Olmo to explore the potential of cool climate grape growing in Frankland River and Mount Barker sub-regions. Although it took a while to get the Lower Great Southern going, viticulture has become a feature of the landscape for nearly half a century.
