Wine Advocate 91 points - Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2009 Isolation Ridge Shiraz gives notes of black cherry compote and warm blueberries with nuances of violets, nutmeg and black truffles. Medium to full-bodied, it offers a taut structure in the mouth with a medium level of grainy tannins and enlivening acid, finishing long. Drink this one now to 2017+.  (Aug 2012)

Wine Spectator 90 points - A vibrant style, with lacy acidity adding lift to the blueberry and black currant flavors, revealing shades of smoke and pepper as the finish lingers. Drink now through 2017.—H.S.  (Mar 19 2014)

Wine Enthusiast 92 points - Meaty and intense, this Shiraz is loaded with scents and flavors of cracked pepper, pungent coffee, roasted meat and ripe blackberries. It’s full bodied yet never seems heavy despite a sensation of warmth on the long, richly textured finish. Drink now-2020. (Sep 2013)

A core of fruit gives weight to the front palate. Blackberry, black olive, ironstone and the use of subtle, spicy French oak give complexity. A sweet core of red currant and dark plum flavoured fruit complements the fine-grained tannins, which give the wine length

Fran­k­land Estate was estab­lished in 1988 by Bar­rie Smith and Judi Cul­lam who con­tinue to be actively involved in every aspect of the vine­yard and win­ery. They are now assisted by their daugh­ter Eliz­a­beth Smith, son Hunter Smith and a small, hard­work­ing team who enjoy the diverse and idio­syn­cratic chal­lenges asso­ci­ated with work­ing in a fam­ily business. The Iso­la­tion Ridge vine­yard lies on part of a farm where the fam­ily have run a wool grow­ing enter­prise since 1974. The deci­sion to diver­sify their farm­ing inter­ests was inspired and informed by a tour of French vine­yards Bar­rie and Judi under­took in 1985 and also by two vin­tages they worked at Chateau Sene­jac in Bordeaux. The wine­mak­ing philoso­phies at Fran­k­land Estate reflect these influ­ences as well as the hard-earned lessons gained from some 17 vin­tages in the Fran­k­land River region. Our approach to wine­mak­ing is based on the prin­ci­ple that the most sig­nif­i­cant char­ac­ter­is­tics of a wine come from the soil and the vine­yard envi­ron­ment. We aim to make wines that reflect nature rather than the hand of the wine­maker. This is the basis of our com­mit­ment to sus­tain­able farm­ing and to work­ing the land in accord with the cycles of nature. We care­fully nur­ture the health of the soils in our vine­yard and only take from our vine­yards as much as can be replaced by nat­ural processes. Our use of viti­cul­tural prac­tices will result in us gain­ing organic cer­ti­fi­ca­tion in 2009 but is already evi­dent in the com­plex­ity, depth and inten­sity of flavour in our wines.
