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. 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.

Loads of charm to the bouquet, cinnamon and mixed red berries, raspberry coulis and toasty, cedary oak. It's silken and beautifully balanced - ripe fruit allowed to sing without the heavy hand of oak. Exceptional value

Deep, rich and savoury. It’s all dark chocolate, blackberry and blackcurrant, dried herbs and cigar box. Thick earthy tannin, intensity of flavour, sweet dark berries and bitter chocolate, fine length and a slick of silty tannin on exit. Powerful.

A distintive minerally cabernet sauvignon that has a strong varietal and vineyard character from this excellent Frankland producer. Deep and concentrated with power and poise. Love that minerally finish with a beautifully leafy lift.
