Ray Jordan review
Ferngrove Frankland River shiraz 2015 ($20)
Plenty of plumy shiraz fruit crammed into this Frankland River number. Dense concentration of those savoury earthy plum with a lift of blueberry and cedar. Coffee and chocolate characters fill the palate. Delivers plenty for the price.
Score: 90/100 Cellar: 5 years

Wine Guide 2016
Another beautiful expression of Riesling from this very special vineyard in Frankland River. It’s fine with powdery lemon zest and light spicy minerals on the nose. The palate has a gossamer fine acid supporting the lingering finish. Has deceptive ageing potential too. CELLAR 8 years
