Wine Advocate 89 points - Deep garnet-purple, the 2011 Rocky Gully Shiraz is scented of cassis, fresh blackberries and wild blueberries with hints of black pepper and moss. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the mouth with ripe black berry and baking spice flavors with a medium level of rounded tannins and lively acid to support, finishing long. Drink this one now to 2016+.  (Dec 2012)

Wine Spectator 89 points - Lithe, boasting lively acidity, with a flavor profile that leans more toward savory herb and meat than fruit, ending with a bead of blackberry on the finish. Oddly compelling. Drink now through 2017. 3,500 cases made. –HS  (Oct 31 2013)

Wine Enthusiast 87 points - This rather chunky wine boasts some delicious raspberry notes, but it also comes across as slightly clumsy, like an American football player taking a turn at a society ball. It’s full flavored and its dusty tannins will work well with grilled steaks. Drink now-2018. (Sep 2013)

Established in 1988 by Barrie Smith and Judi Cullam, Frankland Estate is a family owned and operated winery located in the cool climate region of Frankland River, Western Australia. The family’s main enterprise is sheep and wool production - Isolation Ridge Vineyard is situated within their 3,000 acre property and is planted on a regional mix of ironstone and limonite cemented sand, colloquially called coffee rock. This 74 acre vineyard was planted in 1988 and is certified organic by ACO (Australian Certified Organics). Winemaker Judi Cullam is assisted by her children, viticulturalist Elizabeth Smith and operational manager, Hunter Smith. Fruit for the Rocky Gully wines and the single vineyard Rieslings is sourced from certified organic growers in the Frankland River.

Producer
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.
