Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. It took me a number of years to understand this wine, and it wasn’t until I understood the Frankland River regional DNA that the flavours, but most specifically, the textures here, made sense to me. This is concentrated and supple to start, but the flow of tannins doesn’t tread the same path of say, a Margaret River Cabernet blend (nor should it). Here, the tannins are gravelly and leaning towards rustic, speaking of ferrous and ironstone. They lend a graphite quality and are the key to this wine. The fruit is abundant within the framework of the phenolics; a snow dome of cassis, blackberry, nori, iodine, blood plum and licorice. It’s a beautiful wine with longevity and patience in equal measure.
