2016 Frankland River Shiraz

West Cape Howe WinesVintage Description: All this Shiraz is from our favourite ‘Russell Road’ vineyard in the heart of the Frankland River wine growing district. The gravelly loam soils and high number of sunshine hours produce Shiraz with great colour and flavour. Maturation in new and older French oak complements the rich, spicy berry fruit flavours. 
Winemaking Information:This first release of the Frankland River Shiraz is a showcase of what this isolated sub-region of the Great Southern can achieve. The fruit was harvested, fermented and matured as a single batch in a combination of new and used French oak over 14 months. Minimal fining and manipulation assisted in preserving the true Frankland River characters, allowing the fruit to speak for itself.
