Frankland Estate Shiraz Frankland River Isolation Ridge Vineyard 2004
The Frankland River region is recognised as one of Australia’s finest shiraz growing regions. The Mediterranean climate of warm days and cold nights, combined with the unique ironstone soil found in our Isolation Ridge Vineyard produces shiraz of power, refinement and finesse. The Isolation Ridge shiraz aims to capture all the quintessential fruit opulence, black pepper and spice notes for which the region has become renowned. Frankland Estate has an established international reputation for its Isolation Ridge Shiraz.
Editorial Reviews for Frankland Estate Shiraz Frankland River Isolation Ridge Vineyard
The nose on this wine is a veritable spice box with notes of ginger, mace, and allspice over notes of pepper, earth, tobacco and blue fruits. All of this spice also translates to the mouth but here it is joined by a wall of rather aggressive and drying tannins. the finish gains a bit of sweetness from the wood with a mocha, almond note and shows a resurgence of the fruit promised on the nose but this is a wine that needs additional cellaring to allow the tannins to soften and recede. The balance appears to be here and this has a particularly dense feel to it but it;s best to let it rest for 2-3 years before trying again. 87pts
