Frankland Estate 'Rocky Gully' Shiraz
Grape: Shiraz, Viognier
Region: Frankland River, Western Australia
ounded in 1988 Franklin Estate is in the heart of the Western Australia, in one of the more remote wine regions down under. They’ve been certified organic since 2009, and hailed for their dedication to sustainable farming practices, taking into account the microbiology of the region, and leaving the smallest footprint they can. The family have all worked harvests in bordeaux and burgundy, and hope to make an approachable modern Shiraz, that’s a little more refined. This wine is all JUICYYYYY blue and black fruits- damson plums, bramble berries, black pepper, and clove, with smooth tannins.
