Frankland Estate Olmo’s Reward 2007

It’s named for Olmo, not Elmo (who likes nothing more than a good tickle), as in Harold who put forward, in 1956, Mt Barker and Frankland River as two of his recommendations for promising regions in which to grow wine grapes. On the down side he also introduced the Ruby Cabernet grape, but who could hang a name on you? This blend of Merlot (46%), Cabernet Franc (45%) and Malbec (9%) certainly tickled my fancy. And while I have your attention you can also add Frankland Estate to the list of wineries that don’t respond to their eMail…although seemingly I’ve now been plopped onto their (e)mailing list.
