Fraser Gal­lop Caber­net Mer­lot 2007 NIGEL Gal­lop, with some en­cour­age­ment from his dis­trib­u­tor Do­maine Wine Ship­pers, has de­cided to keep the price of his wines well be­low the av­er­age for Mar­garet River. The 2007 Fraser Gal­lop Caber­net Mer­lot (94 points, and one of two con­tenders from Fraser Gal­lop, the other a caber­net sau­vi­gnon, for last year’s Jimmy Wat­son Tro­phy) is only $20 (less by the case from the cel­lar door). It has good depth and clar­ity to its colour and is driven by its al­most suc­cu­lent caber­net com­po­nent (92 per cent); se­duc­tive black­cur­rant flavours are framed by qual­ity French oak and fine tan­nins. Given its screw­cap clo­sure and 14.5 per cent al­co­hol, it should have amin­i­mum 20-year life but most will hap­pily be con­sumed well be­fore that. www.fraser­gal­lopes­ James Hal­l­i­day
