The continental cool climate sub-region of Frankland River sits within the north west corner of the Great Southern wine region (its latitude 34°39’S). The Riversdale vineyard, planted in 1997 on deep gravel over clay soils, on a north-south orientation, is located 7kms north west of the Frankland River township.

The Philip Adrian is Singlefile’s flagship red wine where every measure is taken to ensure only the best fruit and barrels are selected. This wine will only be made in exceptional vintages.

The wine is 100% cabernet sauvignon (Houghton clones), the fruit picked and sorted in April 2015. It was cold soaked in a small fermenter for two weeks with minimum pump overs before undergoing an extended and gentle maceration lasting for four weeks. Sixty-five percent of the wine was matured in new Bordeaux oak barriques for eighteen months. The balance went to one-year-old (25%) and two-year-old (10%) Bordeaux barriques (for the same period). The wine was bottle aged for a further twelve months before release.


The wine displays aromas of bright red berry fruit and light earthy characters. The palate is vibrant with ripe raspberry fruit and mouth filling supple earthy tannins.

This wine is a stunner. There is some powerful, vibrant red fruit, but it’s balanced by the oak and already it’s silky smooth. Don’t wait for a special occasion, opening a bottle of this stand out Cabernet Sauvignon is the occasion. It shows off the best of the Frankland River region and will happily age for quite a while. Call us hasty jumping into it now but our second bottle will enjoy a long rest in the cellar.

Strikingly fragrant bouquet- with ripened gooseberries and a sprinkling of cardamom. The palate entry is opulent yet bold with full-bodied flavours, finely grained, earthy textural components, reminiscent of satsuma plum and elderberry. And did I taste a whisper of smoke and light maple syrup entwining with the dark, dry fruit? An elegant, sophisticated wine: perfectly balanced to yield mouth-watering delight. One of my favourites- for special occasions, or to warm me up on those cold Great Southern winter nights.
