About

*Frankland Estate** is in our opinion the leading producer of the Frankland River region.

Their consistently excellent ‘Olmo’s Reward’ is named in honour of Dr Harold Olmo, who first identified the potential of the Frankland River to grow quality Bordeaux varieties. The blend uses a different combination of the five main Bordeaux varieties each year depending on vintage, with the 2011 being made up of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot.

It’s a beautifully perfumed, elegant and medium-bodied blend - with the focus on balance, complexity and earthiness rather than sheer power and rich fruit/oak. A premium Bordeaux blend for Bordeaux lovers.

What It Tastes Like

A far cry from many full-bodied, powerhouse Aussie Bordeaux blends, this is all about perfume, balance and structure. The nose is at once spicy, earthy, black-fruited and floral - it really jumps out of the glass. the palate is linear and medium-bodied at most, with Cabernet fruits like cassis and blackcurrant coming to the fore. Firm tannins, refreshing acidity and softly handled oak all play their part. A long, even finish that hints at what’s to come over the years.
