Region: Frankland River, WA
Frankland Estate Riesling was made from 100% Riesling grown in familys estate vineyards. A selection of small ferments was made from parcels of fruit harvested in some younger vines planted in 2006 on a high ironstone rocky ridge in the ironstone ‘coffee rock’ – the classic soil from the Frankland Estate property. This combines with some of Frankland Estate’s original parcels of Riesling planted in 1988.
A very crystalline riesling on the nose with hints of white citrus flower and blossom. The soft and delicate approach builds with a combination of lime and bath salts. Delicate crystalline flavours on the palate show a dry precise Riesling with texture, spice and delicate acidity that give the wine focus and fantastic length. Consistent with the well-established Rieslings from Frankland Estate, this wine displays the balance of pristine fruit flavours and laser-like acidity, allied to generosity of fruit.
