Amelia Park Reserve Shiraz 2012 ~ Frankland River, Western Australia
James Halliday 95/100
Gold Trophy, International Wine Challenge 2015
Silver, Decanter World Wine Awards 2014
Gold, 2016 Sommelier Wine Awards London
Olivier Marie, 2016 Sommelier Wine Awards London ~ "An iron fist in a velvet glove. Elegant and refreshingly textured, this is plum with fleshy tannins and great length. Amazing wine"
Wine Anorak ~ "A new high-end producer"
International Wine Challenge ~ "Lifted notes of eucalyptus and blackberry. Rich, young, spicy and concentrated with beautifully integrated oak. This wine has a long life ahead of it."
James Halliday ~ "Deep crimson-purple; compared to the standard [non Reserve] version it has significantly greater power, body and concentration; French oak is a factor, but it is the fruit that makes it stand out, speaking with utmost clarity of its Frankland River origin, the tannins fine and ripe."
Winemaker Jeremy Gordon has received many awards, including the The Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy - the most prestigious and sought after wine award in Australia.
Frankland River is a key Australian wine sub-region the south of Western Australia. It is located just inland from the Southern Ocean coast, 115 miles (185km) east of Margaret River and 185 miles (300km) south-east of Perth.
Frankland River's cool nights and mineral soils give the region's Shiraz a pleasant peppery sytle, which is reminiscent of a northern Rhone Syrah.
