Fraser Gallop Estate is set upon 165 acres of undulating land on Metricup Road, Wilyabrup, in the Margaret River region. It is a marvellous location close to other premium producers. Although Fraser Gallop is 6km from the coast, its location at the highest point in the Wilyabrup sub-region means that it is affected by many an ocean breeze. All vines are dry-grown. The dominant variety is Cabernet Sauvignon (17 acres), supplemented by other red Bordeaux varieties and 17 acres of Chardonnay.
Their philosophy is to allow the fruit to speak for itself. Through minimal intervention and the use of traditional techniques, as well as the latest technology, they strive to create wines that show balance and finesse upon release and have the structure and pedigree to thrive with careful cellaring.
This wine is made using 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot, 2% Malbec.
