Frankland Estate Isolation Ridge Shiraz is an intensely flavored, concentrated wine distinguished by pristine fruit and enticing mineral complexity. It is bright deep purple-red in color. The nose is a complex and concentrated blend of fruit aromas with spice, black pepper and ironstone flintiness with hints of oak. A core of fruit gives weight to the front palate while blackberry, black olive, ironstone and the use of subtle, spicy French oak give complexity. Red currant and dark plum complements the fine-grained tannins, which give the wine length.
