The Frankland Estate Isolation Ridge Vineyard Riesling is consistently ranked among the best in Australia and has won widespread critical acclaim. With a firm belief Riesling produces the world's greatest white wines, the team at Frankland Estate have made a major commitment to the variety in the Great Southern region of Western Australia.
Soft and approachable the 2020 Frankland Estate Isolation Ridge Riesling fills the palate with intense, tightly interwoven citrus-lemon flavours and vibrant lime-infused acidity complemented by silky-textures. Remarkable power and intensity are balanced by a fragile delicacy and lightness of touch that persists through the long refreshing finish of this distinguished riesling.
"96 Points. Two clones, multiple trellis systems, dry grown, low-yielding, 32yo vines, and a small portion fermented/matured for 10 months in neutral oak all contribute to the wine's layered complexity. Citrus, white stone fruit and apple are cocooned in a film of vibrant acidity. Drink to 2040" - James Halliday, The Weekend Australian.
"96 Points. Superb, energetic, taut and very complex white wine. Scents of ozone and green apple, fennel and talc. Beautiful perfume that reflects perfectly into flavours in the palate, a shimmering, glassy and tense feel drawn long and to a powdery, lightly puckering and, again, talc-like lingering finish. Epic. Tasted: Mar 21 13.5% alc. $45. Screwcap. Drink: 2021 - 2021+"- Mike Bennie, The Wine Front, April 2021.
"The remote Great Southern region of Western Australia is now producing some of Australia’s finest dry rieslings – and this one is at the top of the pile with the ironstone rock on which the grapes are grown adding minerality and texture to the traditional dry citrus notes. The grapes are organically grown and provide a purity and intensity to the palate. Terrific with Thai stir fries. $45." - Winsor Dobbin, ciaomagazine.com.au.
