Frankland Estate Isolation Ridge Syrah 2020
95 POINTS: Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
94 POINTS: James Suckling
"2020 was a wild ride in Western Australia: the yields were down across the board, berries were smaller due to dry conditions, and the resultant reds (it doesn't really matter which region you consider, they're all relevant to this point) are tannic and plush. Neither fruit concentration nor tannin density and ripeness were a problem in 2020. So, the gorgeous floral nose that is in the glass of this 2020 Isolation Ridge Shiraz is even more intriguing and exciting when viewed in that context. There are notes of orange zest, chinotto, lavender, jasmine tea, raspberry leaf tea, red licorice and pomegranate. This is a beguiling wine: it has the combination of the tannins that we so love from Frankland River and the florals that came to this vineyard in this season. The Smith Cullam is possessed of the same floral character. Special wines."
