The Frankland River region is recognised as one of Australia's finest shiraz growing regions. The Mediterranean climate of warm days and cold nights, combined with the unique ironstone soil found in our Isolation Ridge Vineyard produces shiraz of power, refinement and finesse. Our Isolation Ridge shiraz aims to capture all the quintessential fruit opulence, black pepper and spice notes for which the region has become renowned. - Winery Note
Buried deep in the heart of Western Australia's most isolated wine region, Frankland Estate is as much apart of its natural landscape as it is a winery.
Before founding the estate in 1988, we embarked on a tour of French vineyards, and worked two vintages at Bordeaux's renowned Chateau Senejac, in the Haut-Medoc region. Armed with a wealth of knowledge from our French experience and a shared passion for wine, we decided to diversify our farming interests from wool growing to wine by establishing vineyards on Isolation Ridge, a very special location on our property, which has shown all the hallmarks of a great vineyard we came to know through our travels and our viticultural studies.
Our appreciation for the environment in which we work ensures our wines and our vineyards continue to grow with our land in accordance to the cycles of nature. This approach includes organic viticlture, carefully nuturing the health of the soils in our vineyard, and only taking from our land as much as can be later replaced by natural processes. Our passion for sustainable farming was recognised in 2009, when we were awarded on organic certification.
