Gary Walsh, The Wine Front “....Really delivers....Turning out serious Cabernet for a modest price is a noble pursuit. It seems, at least to this observer, that FGE [Fraser Gallop Estate] are working year on year at building better tannin structure in their red wines. Red and black fruits, cigar box and chocolate, floral and regional leafy perfume. Medium bodied, chocolate meets black and redcurrant, spot on acidity and a mesh of chamois-like tannin gives it a beautiful ‘mineral’ feel. Finish is fresh, well-fruited and savoury all at once. ”
Peter Forrestal "Fraser Gallop Estate has made a bigger impact on the Margaret River wine scene than any other winery established since the region's early days."
Ray Jordan "There is no doubt that Fraser Gallop Estate is now right up there with some of the pioneering producers in the Margaret River region for the quality of the wines."
