Frankland Estate Isolation Ridge Frankland River Riesling 2019
Multi-high scoring Riesling strikes again
Frankland Estate is, as Halliday says: “A significant operation... owned by Barrie Smith and Judi Cullam... an array of single vineyard Rieslings has been a highlight...”. This delicious gem is from the Isolation Ridge Vineyard and is organically grown.
“Hewn of fruit from a marginal ironstone-lain site, this is a different kettle of fish to the pungent power of Poison Hill. More linear. Greater tension, perhaps, while exhibiting a flavour spectrum of grapefruit pulp, lemon zest, fennel and lemongrass. More citric, herbal and wet stone slaty. No less intense, but less generous in the here and now. Bodes well for a bright, long future... 94pts” (Halliday).
