A little riper and more concentrated than it’s predecessors there is more intensity of dark berries this time.
Pale salmon pink in colour, refreshing, with a mouth-watering dry finish.
A crisp and refreshing palate. Fresh flavours of grapefruit, passionfruit and gooseberry, with a sizzling citrus finish.
The fruit is bright and fresh with a restrained elegance. Soft oak and well-judged acidity, with substance.
A blend of varieties that perhaps could be found on the Right Bank in Bordeaux.
Fresh and vibrant with good concentration of flavour and mid-palate richness. This wine finishes long and fleshy, with fine silky tannins.
CABERNET BLENDS 2017 (Margaret River)
James Halliday, 95/100, winecompanion.com.au 2019
This marks the third release of the Estate Cabernet Sauvignon in this style where the inspiration came from Clive's time in Bordeaux.
This style takes SSB wines to a higher plane usually reserved for fine barrel fermented Chardonnays.
WINE OF THE WEEK (Australia)
Huon Hooke, 95/100, The Real Review 2019
An elegant Chardonnay with complexity, texture and fine acidity. Delicate but full flavoured.
The inspiration for the Fraser Gallop Cabernet Sauvignon style was taken from some of the great wines of Bordeaux.
Made by freezing hand-picked bunches of Chardonnay which are then pressed and fermented.
