Ferngrove chardonnay 2015 ($20)

Excellent value-for-money chardonnay offering just a little bit more than you expect at this price. Richly complex aromatics with a mix of nectarine and cumquat, lifted with a splash of citrus and lightly roasted nuts. The palate is creamy with neat oak infusion and good length
SCORE 89/100 CELLAR 4 years

Ferngrove cabernet sauvignon 2014 ($20)

Opens with an alluring mix of red berries, mint and a leafy tobacco-like character. It’s medium bodied with good tannin and oak supporting some really nice fruit. Persistent with good depth of flavour. Nice wine for this price.
SCORE 90/100 CELLAR 5 years

Ferngrove King malbec 2014 ($32)

Malbec is a variety that has performed very well in Frankland since the earliest days. This is a slightly firmer expression yet still showing the beautiful weight and depth of fruit with those subtle floral and leafy red fruit characters to the fore. Grainy tannins and tight oak hold the lines through to the finish.
SCORE 91/100 CELLAR 8 years

Ferngrove Majestic cabernet sauvignon 2014 ($32)

Medium- to full-bodied cabernet displaying such an impressive elegance and refinement that captures the essence of this region. Leafy red berry and cedar on the nose. The palate delivers with precision and control with the power of cabernet presented with subtlety. Will evolve into a mighty good wine in a few years.
SCORE 92/100 CELLAR 12 years

Ferngrove The Stirlings cabernet sauvignon shiraz 2012 ($70)

Thoroughly engaging wine made from cabernet and shiraz, two varieties that really sing together. Loads of sweet ripe fruit with a little licorice, dark plum and spiciness. The palate is supple and quite fleshy though with stacks of fine tannin and French support. Will be worth putting away for a while.
SCORE 93/100 CELLAR 10 years
