Aromatically alive. Zesty vibrant limes, tropical fruits, Asian spice, talc and green tea combine for a sensual experience that is characteristic of the Isolation Ridge Vineyard. Limes glide across the palate. Driven by a pure and resolved natural acidity that adds amazing length, combining with pears and mouth watering saline flavors to add complexity. Lingering, seamless and charming. Ripeness levels in Riesling and resulting texture and flavor diversity has been Frankland Estate's big crusade for the past 8-ish years.
This Riesling possesses the hallmark traits of great dry Riesling. With restrained power and coiled tension, the wine will age for at least 15 years.
Made from 100% Riesling grown in the Isolation Ridge vineyard at Frankland Estate.
Frankland Estate is a second-generation winery run by brother and sister, Hunter and Elizabeth Smith, with Elizabeth's husband, Brian Kent, at the winemaking helm since 2010.
Growing up on Isolation Ridge gives Elizabeth and Hunter incredible insight into the wines as they make their way from vine to barrel, bottle to glass. Free to offer opinions and challenge convention, which they feel is vital when they strive to make the best of what you have. Their parents, Judi Cullam and Barrie Smith, had faith and vision when they planted vines on Isolation Ridge back in 1988, which set the tone for the integrity, character and respect for the place that is at the heart of all Frankland Estate does.
