Fraser Gallop Estate

Fraser Gallop Estate

Fraser Gallop Estate focuses on the traditional wines of Margaret River – cabernet sauvignon, chardonnay and semillon sauvignon blanc. The vines are dry grown from planting, cane-pruned, low-yielding, shootthinned, bunch-thinned, leaf-plucked and handpicked. The winemaking combines the traditional approach to these varieties with the latest technology and expertise.

 

Fraser Gallop Estate semillon sauvignon blanc 2016 ($24)

As racy as an Olympic 100m final. Crisp fresh tropical fruit and a decent splash of citrus tang. The palate is lively, as you would expect, with a precise and very long palate sustained with nice acid. Clean zippy finish in the mouth.
SCORE 91/100 CELLAR 3 Years

Fraser Gallop Estate Parterre semillon sauvignon blanc 2015 ($35)

I like the way the delicacy and fineness of these varieties have been retained while adding the additional complexity of wild yeast fermentation and a mix of old and new oak influences. Lovely mouthfeel which still has that driving flavour power through to the long finish.
SCORE 94/100 CELLAR 9 years

Fraser Gallop Estate Parterre cabernet sauvignon 2013 ($45)

A refined and highly classy cabernet which also has a little petit verdot, merlot, malbec and cabernet franc to complete the classic Bordeaux blend. Silky smooth palate with fine chalky tannins and super fine grained oak. The fruit is so well balanced and poised through the middle palate to the long finish. Excellent wine.
SCORE 96/100 CELLAR 10 years
