Frankland Estate Shiraz 2018
Open-fermented, extended maceration, 14 months maturation in French puncheons. The deep purple colour sets thee scne for a poweful, fragrant wine with poached spiced plum and ripe tannins, the French oak bating a delicate tattoo on the finish. Drink to 2033. 95 Points. James Halliday.
Lovely shiraz, bit of a treat. Graphite, clove, dark chocolate and ripe black cherry. Both dry and generous at once. Sweet-fruited and savoury. Nuanced. Flows effortlessly but there’s tannin here too. Medium-weight in a good way. All those things. Drink 2021-2026+. 93 Points. Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front.
