REVIEWS ON SOME PREVIOUS VINTAGES

Frankland Estate Poison Hill Riesling 2012
"The 2013 Poison Hill Riesling has an expressive nose of honeyed white peach, lime cordial and pink grapefruit dotted with touches of fennel seed and jasmine. This dry, light-bodied wine is exploding with citrus and stone-fruit freshness and is already very approachable. It finishes satisfyingly long. Drink it now to 2023+."
92 Points Wine Advocate

"You have to admire any producer with enough pluck to put the word 'Poison' on their wine. I can think of so many other wines where it would be entirely apposite. And while I'm going, might I add what an absolutely GROSS perfume Poison is?

Lots of funky reductive stink. Savoury, light cheesiness, aromatic herbs, lemon and lime. Light bodied, intense and slatey with a driving line of acidity and a finish that rushes you, and leaves the gate open. Wonderful."
94+ Points Wine Front

"Crunchy, chalky, minerally riesling with a burst of lime juice flavour ripping through its core. Low-ish alcohol, piercing style. Impressive from all angles."

Frankland Estate Poison Hill Riesling 2012
Lifted orange blossom with hints of stone fruit and wet stone characters. Citrus aromatics with a touch of honeysuckle. It is elegant and light on the front palate which opens into a core of generous fruit. A complex integration of citrus, floral perfume and a quartz like minerality that displays a soft presence on the long and dry finish.

An expressive fruit driven wine on the nose that opens up in the glass, this wine reflects the uncompromising criteria used in fruit selection, has a purity of flavour and exceptional balance that results in a wine that is focused and intense with layered complexities enabling it to be enjoyed now and for years to come. The wine finishes with length and focus.
