VINEYARD & WINEMAKING

Frankland River is arguably the premier shiraz growing sub-region of Western Australia and is recognised for its distinctive black fruit and black pepper characters. Shiraz from the Riversdale vineyard, planted in 1997, delivers some of the best Frankland River shiraz with characteristics expected of fine Frankland River fruit. Early 2015 saw a dry and warm summer lasting well into April, providing excellent growing conditions which resulted in high quality juicy, fresh and vibrant shiraz. Ripeness was achieved at relatively low sugar levels. After picking and sorting fermentation took place in open fermenters and maceration was gentle and lasted for 40 days with minimum pump-overs. The wine was then aged in low toast French oak barriques for ten months and aged in bottle for a minimum of seven months prior to release.


THE WINE

This wine displays vibrant violet and dark fruit and subtle spice aromas. The medium bodied palate displays flavours of blackberry, pepper, spice and tobacco with hints of cocoa which persist through to a dry finish. It is a medium bodied style shiraz of power and complexity but with silky tannins and a refined delicacy.

Outstanding rich, dark red wine better than many of the SA Southern Vales and Barossa reds.

Immediately upon pouring, the depth of colour of this wine thrills me and the anticipation is intense. It is a deep purple/plum and promises an equally exciting nose and mouth feel. The expectation is fulfilled and, delightfully, the wine is perfectly balanced with fine tannins. The weight suits most food styles and is absolutely perfect with lamb backstraps. Being a rational person, I assess the wines I drink on quality and value and the Singlefile Frankland River Shiraz delivers on both, as well as boasting a great cellaring potential. I look forward to assessing the latter regularly: it certainly won't be a chore.
