Product Description

This wine was made from 100% Riesling grown in the Isolation Ridge vineyard at Frankland Estate. Riesling vines from two different clones were planted in 1988 on undulating north- and east-facing slopes with duplex soils of ironstone gravel over a clay sub-soil. A number of trellis systems are used throughout the vineyard, which is situated 256 metres above sea level. The cool nights and long, slow ripening periods typical of the Frankland River region allow maximum flavour development while maintaining the distinctive vibrant acidity for which Rieslings from this region are renowned. The vineyard is farmed according to certified organic principles and this is reflected in the clarity and complexity of the pristine fruit from the vineyard. 
Grapes are pressed immediately on arrival at the winery with the juice left to settle in tank overnight before being racked to fermentation vessel. The wine is fermented in stainless tanks at low temperatures (less than 15°C) over eight weeks with minimal intervention in order to obtain the purest expression of the pristine, organically grown fruit from the Isolation Ridge vineyard. The wine is then left on its lees for six months. A small parcel of Riesling was fermented and aged in (neutral) oak for 10 months where it attains lovely complex textural components and enhances the opulence of the wine.
The nose features intense mineral slate-stone notes, shy white citrus florals, spice and young fennel. It has grace and poise on the palate, with a clear and resolved acidity that carries the fruit all the way into a long saline, mineral finish. Elegant yet powerful, tight and delicate, it has tension that builds wonderful mouthfeel, highlighted by a seamless texture. This wine possesses the hallmark traits of great dry Riesling with delicacy, purity and a pristine fruit profile. It’s a true testament to its unique site. – Hunter Smith, Frankland Estate.

OMG. Incredible complexity on the nose with crushed-stone, slate and lemon character. Some nutmeg and white pepper, too. Full-bodied with a crunchy and creamy palate that highlights the bitter-lemon and mineral flavours. Very, very long. Organic wine. Drink now. Screw cap. 96 Points James Suckling

Such tension and energy here, and it feels kind of ‘Germanic’ in its intensity and drive. Woolly jumper/smoke, green apple, lime, crushed fennel and dried flowers. It’s dry, flinty and very crunchy, the bite of Granny Smith apple, with a lavender perfume, intense acidity, and chalky feel marks it out as a compelling wine. And the length. It’s sure to age beautifully. 95 Points The Wine Front
