Frankland Estate Smith Cullam Riesling 2015

“A very highly regarded off-dry riesling, this year more in the Rheingau style than that of the Mosel Valley, the amount of residual sugar largely shaded by the acidity; that said, both the length and balance are very good, and it would be a sacrilege to drink any more than a bottle until 3 or 4 years down the track, and preferably far longer than that.

Product Description

“A very highly regarded off-dry riesling, this year more in the Rheingau style than that of the Mosel Valley, the amount of residual sugar largely shaded by the acidity; that said, both the length and balance are very good, and it would be a sacrilege to drink any more than a bottle until 3 or 4 years down the track, and preferably far longer than that. The points are for the wine as it is today, not as it will be once it has learned to walk.”

Frankland Estate ISmith Cullam Riesling 2011
"The estate's top wine toys with sweetness, yet it has flinty, savoury appeal, enhanced via old oak. Lime-sherbet characters have a steely backbone, peachy depth, vibrant flavour and a long finish."
94 Points Ralph Kyte-Powell, The Age  Uncorked


Frankland Estate ISmith Cullam Riesling 2011
"It is an unexpected surprise, but given Frankland Estate is behind this, it should not be too great of an awakening. What we have here is Australias shining beacon of off-dry Riesling This is a triumph. Fresh and lively on the nose, there are sparkling minerals and citrus, pith, peel and juice, lime and fresh peeled apples a complex fragrance. The palate is seamlessly stretched along a playful acid/sugar exchange: it is full of pure and lively lime and apple flavour, with some hints of white peach and a meticulously shaped fade. Very long and stays bright “ Really superb."
97 Points Nick Stock Sydney Morning Herald/The Melbourne Age Good Wiine Guide
