Acacia Vineyard Frankland River Shiraz 2006

External Review by Great Wines Direct:

Named ‘Winery of the Year’ in James Halliday’s 2011 Wine Companion, Larry Cherubino wants his wines to be distinctive and to speak clearly of their variety and vineyard site. He believes in spending time in the vineyard, in paying attention to canopy and water management, and most importantly, picking at the right time with minimal interference in the winery. From delicate whites to big reds his wines have class and finesse. Grapes : Shiraz 100% Region : Australia / Western Australia / Frankland River Maker : Larry Cherubino Notes : A gentle and detailed wine which displays all of the hallmarks of the Great Southern Frankland River region. Aromatic spice and blue fruit notes carry though to this softly textured wine which has ample but soft tannins. Ageing : The balance and stucture of the wine should it age for the next 7-10 years. ABV : 14%
