Roving Sommelier is passionate about premium quality Australian regional wines. Frankland Estate first came onto my wine radar around twenty years ago when I was working as a wine buyer and head sommelier in some of London’s most high-profile restaurants. Being a Shiraz/Syrah lover, and also a fine admirer and fan of many of Australia’s boutique vineyards, Frankland Estate soon became a personal favourite.
Frankland Estate is a family owned and operated winery in the remote Frankland River region of Western Australia. This Shiraz wine is made from estate grown fruit to reflect the unique ironstone soils and the rugged terrain of the Frankland River region.
Distinct, vibrant, and intense wines that express a sense of place. All in all, their share a similar philosophy to myself – in other words – wines made with love and care and express a unique terroir.
Best enjoyed served at room temperature with or without food and in a convivial atmosphere. Perfect with duck and game dishes.
