Rocky Gully Shiraz 2013 - 2 Bottles Left

Rocky Gully Shiraz 2013 from Frankland Estate

Tasting Notes

The 2013 Rocky Gully Shiraz has 1% Viognier added to it to give it a bit more aromatic lift and textural, mid palate broadness. This is a cool climate Shiraz at its finest, with shades of pepper and spice to the plum and red fruits tones on the nose. Medium to medium fuller bodied, there’s a subtle creaminess to the texture, with the lightly spiced red fruit flavors given vibrancy by good underlying acidity and finer tuned tannins on the back end bringing this to a soft, lingering finish. This is a wine that has a life of up to seven years from vintage, so this is just now starting to open up and it can be enjoyed over the next four to five years.


Winemaker Notes

Bright red fruits, with plum, black pepper and spice with subtle integration of oak.

A middle weighted palate with bright juicy fruit and a lifted integration of black pepper, plum and spice notes. Creamy texture and subtle oak provides a poised finish.

The tiny addition of viognier with vibrant shiraz fruit notes gives aromatic lift and subtle texture which makes the wine more approachable in its youth. Good acidity and fine tannins combine to create a soft finishing, well weighted cool climate style. Ideal food wine which will complement many dishes including pork, lamb and duck. Drink now to 5 - 7 years from vintage.
