"Judi Cullum and Barrie Smith planted vines in their Isolation Ridge vineyard in 1988 with a simple goal: to leave the land in better shape than when they found it and produce some outstanding wines along the way. They have been certified organic since 2009 and continue to work with the land to create biodiversity. Their children, Elizebeth and Hunter Smith, now run production, with Brian Kent as their winemaker since 2010. The vision remains the same, putting the land first and winemaking second."

Tasting Note

"Frankland Estate’s red wines have upped the ante in recent years. This is another beautiful example. It’s blessed with abundant spice and roasted nut characters, shows immense finesse in both its flow of fruit and spread of tannin, and is persistent and then some. Florals, mid-weight red berry flavours, twiggy spice and undergrowth characters. It’s wildly expressive and yet it feels effortless. I tasted this wine in the office; my car was parked nearly two kilometres away; I carried the half-finished bottle through the streets, such was my desire to carry on with it." - CAMPBELL MATTINSON
