The 1890s brought boom years to the nascent Aussie wine industry, as connoisseurs throughout Europe and the Empire were introduced to the Dionysian delights of new world Claret by Tyrrell, St Huberts and Wirra Wirra. An enterprising family of Scots took heed of the times to plant grapevines on a uniquely auspicious block in Valley Clare, they called it St Andrew and produced forty vintages of the most sensational quality Claret until the 1930s. The Taylor family acquired the fallow farm in 1995 and brought St Andrew's vines back to life. The treasured block endures as home to the flagship range of Taylor wines, one of the most distinguished vineyards in all Australia.

Fraser Gallop Parterre Cabernet Sauvignon CONFIRM VINTAGE

Cabernet Sauvignon Petit Verdot Cabernet Franc Malbec Merlot Margaret River Western Australia
Inspired by the great Crus of Bordeaux, the aim is to build complexity within a single vineyard wine, to allow the fruit to shine, as complemented by the finest oak, a Cabernet of profound structure, polish and finesse. The inclusion of small portions Merlot and Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, are treated to a regimen of cutting edge and old world vinification techniques. Fraser Gallop's superlative Cabernet vines are the highly regarded Houghton clone, sourced off unirrigated blocks yielding fruit with a massive concentration of flavours.

Fruit is hand picked, destemmed with minimal crushing and chilled to 8C for three days cold soak in closed fermenters. The wine was pumped over daily using a turbopiguer, allowing better homogenisation and extraction without damaging the berries. One batch is pressed off skins early to complete fermentation in oak, another is pressed off just after fermentation, a further component is pressed off just after fermentation and treated to macro oxidation for five days, another is left on skins for thirty five days. Each technique contributes something unique. The wines are transferred to French oak for malolactic and racked twice over the next year and a half, topped up every four weeks before assemblage.
Deep crimson colour with rich hues. Fraser Gallop shows a remarkable complex array of aromas of black cherry, dark fruits, bitter chocolate, forest floor earthiness and pomegranate molasses richness. Layers and layers of flavour provide for a seamless palate. Tannins are quite fine and chalky, providing great structure for aging. A wine of richness and elegance.
