Tucked up high in the northwest corner of the Great Southern region, Frankland River is a productive farming area, bound by rolling hills and natural bushland coloured by native wildflowers. It’s the most northerly of the Great Southern sub-regions and the furthest inland, producing great climatic conditions for growing Shiraz, Riesling and Cabernet Sauvignon. Altitude ranges between 200 and 300 metres.
Frankland River’s highly productive fine, gravelly marri loam soils are derived from granite or gneiss outcrops, typically rich, red in colour and uniform in depth. The climate is Mediterranean with dominant winter and spring rainfall. Despite Frankland River’s distance from the coast, the typography of the land encourages a sea breeze, which finds its way inland and cools the late afternoon temperature creating a long, slow ripening season.
Singlefile crafts its Clément V red (GSM) blend, its Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon from the highly regarded Riversdale Vineyard in Frankland River.
