Rocky Gully Cabernets 2017
SPECIAL DOZEN BUY. Cabernet blend from WA.
Rocky Gully Wines hail from the award winning Frankland Estate in Frankland River, the coolest and most isolated wine-growing region in Western Australia. Warm days, cool nights (maritime influenced by the proximity to the Great Southern Ocean – means milder summers and winters) optimum ripening conditions, sustainable organic practices and a pristine pollution free environment are all contributing factors to the fine wines it produces. Frankland Estate in 2010 were certified organic. They call the Rocky Gully wines their “second generation of Frankland Estate” and these are a lot more than just a mere second label … same pristine quality of fruit and uncompromising quality at a bargain price.
100% Estate grown fruit; Certified Organic.
44% Cabernet Franc, 35% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Malbec and 5% Petit Verdot. This fruit-driven blend of five varieties gives balance and complexity that allows for immediate appeal. Blueberry and earth, with hints of black olives and cedar and vanilla. Lifted currant and plums with tobacco, mocha and soft florals. An elegant wine with soft tannin and lovely weight. Falls into place mid-palate, then finishes with underlying hints of dark plums and tobacco leaf.
Beautiful bright acid, fine grained tannins -perfect drinking now or has structure to cellar up to 5 years – if you can keep your hands off it that long!
