Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
97% Shiraz and 3% Viognier from the Frankland River region. Fresh lifted aromas of plums and cherries abound with black pepper and spice. Earthy savoury hints combine seamlessly with subtle oak flavours. Dried herbs and spice on the palate is balanced with blueberry and a soft creamy palate. A long textured palate with mouth coating grainy tannin. An elegant cool climate Shiraz.
Vineyard Notes
This wine was made from Shiraz and Viognier grown on the family’s estate vineyard. A selection of fruit was harvested from the younger vines planted 2006 on a high ironstone rocky ridge and the original vines around the winery. The Isolation Ridge vineyard is managed under organic principals (certified organic 2010), a practice we feel is important for reflecting the uniqueness of the site.
Winemaker Notes
This wine was fermented as long and slowly as possible, at temperatures not exceeding 30C in open fermentation tanks that allowed the cap to be worked by plunging and gently pumping over. An extended maceration period followed completion of the ferment to allow optimal colour, flavour and tannin extraction. It was aged for 18 months in 500 litre French oak puncheons.

“Bright, full crimson-purple; the variety and the terroir seek to impose each one’s stamp over the other, both failing in their attempt, the perfect win-win outcome. Blackberry fruit, spice and black pepper lead the way on the bouquet and medium-bodied palate alike, French oak (subtle) and tannins (ripe, but fine) completing a great portrait of cool-grown shiraz.”

“I love the vivid, meaty black cherry and blackberry fruit here. Sweet but very fresh with good acidity, and a peppery, detailed edge. There’s a slight leafy edge and nice grip. Deliciously focused, this is a very stylish cool-climate expression of shiraz.” 92 pts

“Light, spicy and fragrant. Crushed green peppercorns, red rose petals and raspberries. The palate is red fruited and concentrated, though is packaged into a medium-bodied palate. Beautiful energy and expression. Youthful and bright. Lovely.”

“deep cherry red. Fine dusty/mineral quality to the dark fruit and black pepper spice. More red-fruited on the palate with both fruit and oak sweetness. Refined tannin texture with just a slight chew at this youthful moment, and a juicy, moreish finish. Well balanced enough for several years’ beneficial ageing, or drink it now on the lively fruit.” 16/20 pts
