2007 Wines from Frogmore Creek
Fragrant lime and lemon blossom continue to fresh citrus flavours. Zippy mineral cool-climate acid enhances the length and aging potential. Went well with veal saltimbocca.
We only have a limited release Frogmore Creek Cabernet from the slightly warmer vintages, when the grapes have flavours of black currant and dark cherry and the finished wine has deep velvet tannins. Went well with slow cooked wild venison.
Nectarine and oatcake aromas mingled with subtle toasty oak, followed by fresh yet complex flavours and lengthy mineral cool-climate acid. Went well with sage barbequed quail.
Delicate aromas of toasty brioche, wild strawberries and cashews subtly emerge from the fine beads. Full and crisp flavours of green apples and fresh citrus fruits linger on the refined acid structure. Went well with rapid pan fried abalone. This wine is well suited to a wide array of foods served as an aperitif, with canapés or with sorbet at the end of a meal.
This 2007 pinot noir has a perfect balance of fresh red-berry fruit and subtle spicy oak. Lifted aromas of dark cherries and fresh roasted coffee. The palate is rich and lengthened with a silky tannin structure. Went well with sage and rabbit ravioli.
From one of Tasmania’s best vintages, the wine shows delicious herbal blackcurrant and cedary oak characters on a fleshy, finely balanced, cool-climate palate. The wine is young, still reasonably tight but accessible with appealing freshness, good depth, texture and intensity and a firm tannic grip promising superb ageing potential.
At release in January 2011 this wine had aromas of dark cherries, lifted with savoury notes, following through to a multilayered palate with ripe plums, silken tannins and immense length.
Bright, light colour; a wine of exceptional precision and purity, with vibrant red cherry accented fruit; while the palate is not weighty, it has admirable length.
Fragrant blossom and passionfruit aromas; a lively palate with considerable thrust fuelled by crisp, crunchy, lemony acidity.
Very pale colour; beautifully pure, the freeze concentration technique working miracles for the variety, allowing it to give the full varietal expression so rare in dry versions. Top gold, Tas Wine Show '08.
Skilfully made, reflecting much experience; tangy lime juice flavours, the juicy sweetness of the mid-palate countered on the finish by acidity; as yet, not particularly complex.
Bright, gleaming green-quartz; given 3 years' bottle age before release, making the reliance on cork all the more puzzling, however well it has performed in this particular bottle; the flavours of white peach and grapefruit are very intense, the finish commensurately long; sustained by Tasmanian acidity.
Clear, bright red-purple; has matured very well, its plum and black cherry aromas and flavours still clearly defined and vibrant; spicy oak is a positive contributor, a high-quality cork doing its job very well in this bottle.
Good clarity; bright, fresh elegant red fruits; has thrust and drive through to a long finish
Some nettle aromas, the fruit is fine and the finish harmonious and long.
Fresh, tangy, minerally style, with bright acidity; some asparagus and grass flavours grow on the back-palate and finish.
Frogmore Creek is in southern Tasmania - a very cool climate in which to grow grapes. The grapes usually take longer to ripen than in warmer climates, and in the process (all going well) develop layers of flavour and delicacy. This needs a few years in a cool, dark cellar in order to sort itself out. For now its flavours are reserved and it feels tight with tannin. There are flavours here of currants and dark cherries, peanuts and woodspice. It has lots of fine-grained, coffee-accented tannin and terrific persistence. Once it uncoils itself (which it will in time) we'll be able to get a better view of the wine.
