Historically, the stock route that passes through Lange Estate was the lifeline of the Frankland River community. Although primarily used in the late 1800s to move cattle and sheep, the stock route was also used by the local community to travel day to day, acquiring their provisions and securing their livelihoods. Running from Bridgetown to Mount Barker, this was a vital passage in the area which continues to be used today.

James Halliday | 94 Points
"Blood plum, kirsch, ferrous notes and red dirt – these are the regional hallmarks of Frankland River shiraz, and once you smell them, it's hard to see anything else. This is plush and structured, with a 50/50 split of savoury spice and sweet fruit. Engaging, and bloody brilliant value for money. Elegantly muscled." - Erin Larkin

Grapefruit and citrus blossom, bath salts and sherbet.
Spiced citrus fruits upfront, mandarin and a lovely acid backbone that drives the wine to a long, clean finish.
Bright straw with a green tinge.
Bright citrus, white stone fruit, and subtle oak spice.
Grapefruit, lemon tart and hints of cashew fill the palate. An elegant complexity from the natural ferment and the crisp, natural acidity provides a long, morish finish.
