About The Wine

Cabernet Sauvignon might be the best red variety growing on the Frankland Estate vineyard.

This organically farmed, medium weight red is tip-top value. 

Flushed with classic Cabernet characers, blackcurrant, a little bayleaf and fine, soft tannin.

This is great buying for any fan of WA Cabernet, for now or a few years in the cellar.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

"Wafts of dark chocolate, cedar and dried Italian mixed herbs are complemented by lifted red currants and mulberry. The palate is opulent yet focused. Ripe fruit abounds, balanced by mouth coating chalky tannin, which gives the wine texture and length. Ripe mulberry flavours intertwine with cacao and tobacco leaf. " - Hunter Smith, winemaker

Additional Info

From The Producer

Vineyard Notes
Fruit for this wine was sourced from mature vines in the Isolation Ridge vineyard at Frankland Estate. The vineyard sits on an undulating northern and eastern facing slope on ancient duplex soils of gravel and loam over a clay sub-soil. It is farmed using organic viticultural practices and this is reflected in the depth and concentration of fruit flavours. The vines are trained on a Scott Henry trellis system to enhance sunlight penetration of the canopy and optimize ripening conditions.

Winemaker Notes
This wine was fermented as long and slowly as possible, at temperatures not exceeding 26°C in open pot fermentation tanks that allowed the cap to be worked by plunging and an extended maceration period allowed optimal colour, flavour and tannin extraction. It was aged in 500 litre French oak puncheons, this contributing textural complexity without compromising the opulent natural fruit flavours of the wine.
