About The Producer

Comments from Wine Buyer Steve:

Wow!!! I could not believe our luck when we were offered a small parcel of this outstanding Frankland River Shiraz 2012 from one of our long-term suppliers. This wine is one of their signature wines, and it is superb! Rich and complex fruit flavours of blueberries dominate with beautiful well integrated oak and complex spice and pepper. This is a flagship Shiraz from Frankland River which is sold by the winery for $52.00 per bottle. This is truly a steal at $26.00 per bottle for our customers but be quick as if you blink it will be all gone.

My Score 95/100 WACC Trophy.

What is Shiraz

fermentation in small open vessels, which are hand plunged 3 times daily, the 2012 Shiraz was

is only made in small volumes,

using carefully selected premium fruit from the wineries oldest Shiraz vines. Traditional

then pressed off skins after extended skin contact. Malolactic fermentation occurred while

maturing in 1/3 new French Oak followed by a maturation in barrel for 20 months.

The producer of this fantastic Frankland River Limited Release Shiraz 2012 is in the Great

Southern region of Western Australia. They are one of WA’s largest family owned and operated

wine producers. The current owners represent the third and fourth generation living and working on

the in Frankland River. It is this family’s love and commitment the Great Southern, as well as the

unique combination of gravelly loam soils, warm sunny days and cool nights during the ripening

season that produce grapes of intense varietal character and a sense of place. The winery is rated

a perfect 5 Red Stars by James Halliday in his 2020 Wine Companion.

The French and Americans call it Syrah, we call it Shiraz. A versatile variety and well suited to a

range of climates, and can be found in most of the grape growing regions of Australia.

In hot climates (such as the Barossa Valley of Australia), Shiraz is more consistently full-bodied

with softer tannin, jammier fruit and spice notes of liquorice, anise and earthy leather. In many

regions, the acidity and tannin levels of Shiraz allows the wines produced from the grape to have

favourable aging potential.
