From a mature single vineyard in Frankland River comes a stunning, defining wine for Millbrook. With a trophy and a gold medal to its name, it already has the runs on the board, and little wonder for what is a lovely cool climate Shiraz

Expert Reviews

95 Points - Ned Goodwin - Halliday's Wine CompanionA fine shiraz exuding varietal content and regional DNA: cracked pepper to iodine-doused acidity framing blueberry, lilac aromatics and charcuterie all-sorts. It's very good. It is warmer than Northern Rhone top-drawer, but a truly energetic wine crackling along a taut timbre of acidity and tannin.

How's it taste?

Deep cherry red, purple hues. Aroma of lifted florals, mulberry and spice. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, ripe red berry, cherry and bramble, beautiful lifted lavender and violets with undertones of peppery spice from the cool climate vineyard site. The tannins are ripe and silky giving this wine a long finish.

How was it made?

The fruit for this first release Single Vineyard Shriaz was sourced from a 30-year-old vineyard located in the Frankland River region of the Great Southern, which provides high quality cool climate fruit. This region specialises in Shiraz that has a peppery, spice and red fruited backbone unique to Frankland River. The 2017 growing season was distinctively mild, meaning canopy management was very important to maintain fruit quality while the cooler weather meant a long ripening period that allowed for excellent flavour development.

Perfectly ripe fruit was hand harvested and delivered to the winery during the cool night. The fruit was destemmed and transferred to open top fermenters for fermentation, hand plunged twice daily for gentle extraction of tannins. Temperatures were kept below 25 degrees Celsius to retain the beautiful aromatics of the Great Southern region. The wine was then pressed to new and seasoned French oak puncheons, matured for 12 months before being lightly filtered and bottled.

From $10 quaffers through to truly monumental $100 bottles of liquid art, I love introducing friends, family and our customers to world beating wines at all price points.
