Fran k land Estate was estab lished in1988 by Bar rie Smith and Judi Cul lam who con­tinue to be actively involved in every aspect of the vine yard and win ery. They are now assisted by their daugh ter Eliz a beth Smith, son Hunter Smith and a small, hard work­ing team who enjoy the diverse and idio syn cratic chal lenges asso ci ated with work ing in a fam ily business. The Iso la tion Ridge vine yard lies on part of a farm where the fam ily have run a wool grow ing enter prise since 1974. The deci sion to diver sify their farm ing inter ests was inspired and informed by a tour of French vine yards Bar rie and Judi under took in 1985 and also by two vin tages they worked at Chateau Sene jac in Bordeaux. The wine mak ing philoso phies at Fran k land Estate reflect these influ ences as well as the hard-earned lessons gained from some 17 vin tages in the Fran k land River region. Our approach to wine mak ing is based on the prin ci ple that the most sig nif i cant char­ac ter is tics of a wine come Read more »

  • Frankland Estate Olmo's Reward 1994

    Snoothrank:

    Garnet to brown rim. Herbal and light tomato leaf aromas over dried red fruit, dried earth and leaves. Chalky texture. Dried red berry fruit with a dusty, minerally quality. Hints of mushroom, underbrush, turned soil and dried leaves. Surprising it still has some fruit flavor to it at this age. Drink now for sure. Best with red meat dish ... Read More

  • Frankland Estate Riesling Frankland River Rocky Gully 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Whistle-clean on the nose and palate. A very pure riesling without spice or petrol notes, just neat citrus fruit and a hint of minerality in a technically perfect offering. Read More

  • Rocky Gully Shiraz Viognier. Frankland Estate Frankland Estate 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Very nice shiraz without the over the top jammy fruit. Not much on the nose but plenty of dark fruit and a decent finish. The viognier takes the bite of the shiraz down a notch and adds some complexity and smoothness. Read More

    Creamy mouthfeel, flavors of dark dried fruits like figs and plums, black tea, but still not overly sweet or heavy. Black. Read More

  • Frankland Estate Shiraz Blend Frankland River Shiraz Viognier Rocky Gully 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Nice Shiraz, the touch of voignier give a nicer finish. Fruity on the nose, though tastes a touch on the mineral side. Well balanced, but not a prominently flavored wine. Nice silky mouthfeel. A good pairing with subtle flavors in food, but would likely be easily overpowered by anything rich or spicy. Read More

  • Frankland Estate Red Bordeaux Blend Frankland River Olmo's Reward 1997

    Snoothrank:

    When I first tasted this parcel about 3 wks ago, we were pairing it with steak...We almost thought we ruined our taste with the smell of the steak, but after taking this wine outside, we realized, the wine had beautiful blackened grilled steak across the majority of the palate. subtle light vanilla, smoke, and small nuances of leather and earth...

  • Frankland Estate Riesling Frankland River Isolation Ridge Vineyard 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Classically taut and tight lemon, lime incipient petrol and slightly vegetal forest undergrowth note rise from the glass like a rising souffle. In the mouth this is chiseled elegance with a great intensity of flavor yet little weight and no fat. It's got cut and definition to spare and will no doubt improve with some time in the cellar but this ... Read More
