Frankland Estate, Shiraz, Frankland River, 2018
Medium deep garnet with a bright nearly clear rim. Floral and lifted with autumnal nuances to give earthy compliment to Turkish Delight (rosewater and chocolate), a dash of cool jaeger herbs, cranberry, purple fruits and flowers, black pepper and fresh clove spice with minimal cedary oak influence. Focused, just midweight and light footed with sublime micro-mesh tannins. Cool freshness with understated length and persistence. Class and value for immediate enjoyment.
Rating: 19/20 (95/100)
