Franki’s Mourvèdre Rosé 2017

Very short skin contact produced the desired pale onion skin colour.  This clear Mourvèdre Rosé has a forthcoming nose of strawberries and marshmallows, followed by a burst of fresh fruit on the palate with a smooth lingering aftertaste.  The freshness and appeal of this wine makes it an anytime wine that can be enjoyed on its own, with any salads and white meat dishes.

Analysis:  Alc 13.0%  RS=4.2 g/l  pH=3.43  TA=5.24 g/l

Franki’s Viognier 2016

This is an unwooded Viognier with the most appealing colour. The nose has refreshing tropical and citrus characters which follow through to the palate. The fruity palate has a crisp finish. This is refreshing wine will pair well with sushi, salads and white meat dishes, even enjoyed on its own.

Analysis: Alc 12%, RS 4.6g/l, p/h 3.32, TA 5.8g/l

Franki’s Barrel Fermented Viognier 2017

The settled Viognier must, was slowly fermented in french oak with one month lees contact.  This bright brilliant wine has a complex nose of vanilla and peaches and on the palate, there is balance between the oak and fruit.  This full bodied wine has a creamy mouthfeel and will pair well with cheeses, white meat dishes and a mild curry.

Wines & Winemaking

Franki’s Vineyards has been established as a pioneering venture, which does not follow the conventional patterns of the local wine industry from the selection of cultivars, Mourvèdre, Grenache Noir and Viognier through to the specially tailored ‘goblet’ vine training system.

We have a minimum intervention approach to making our wines. In our cellar we use technology from the New World and combine suitable elements from the Old World standards as practiced in the Southern Rhône wine region in France.

All of this combined with our exceptional terroir allows us to create some refreshingly different wines
