95 Points - Gary Walsh
Located in the Wilyabrup sub-region of Margaret River, Fraser Gallop continues to strengthen its reputation as one of the region's finest wineries. Unashamedly inspired by the great red wines of Bordeaux, Fraser Gallop's focus on it's Cabernet blends is delivering some impressive results.
The 2018 Fraser Gallop Parterre Cabernet is another brilliant example of this Bordeaux-style regional hero. A lovely approachable, medium-bodied wine with a succulent fleshy mid-palate with flavours of blackberry, red currants and hints of bay leaf and lapsang tea. Layers of flavours are on offer, all delivered with restrained elegance and finesse, making this one of Margaret River's finest Cabernets.
"95 Points. Blackberry and boysenberry, sage and mint, fetching floral perfume, baking spice and vanilla custard oak. It’s medium-bodied with pleasing density of fruit, plenty of fine grained graphite tannin, cool acidity, so svelte and composed, with a long pencilly finish. Needs a little more time for the oak to integrate, but the feel of it, its balance and shape, mark it out as an excellent wine. Tasted: Jun21

"95 Points. Cabernet dominant, but the other Bordeaux varieties are in there in small amounts. It's a tight and angular powerhouse. A combination of deep blackcurrant, bay leaf and iodine on the nose. The palate then kicks in with all its formidable horsepower and grunt. Yet, despite all the power and intensity it retains a poised elegance that is so appealing. Firm chalky tannins and a decent lick of oak complete a very good wine." - Ray Jordan, The West Australian.
