Frankland Estate Poison Hill Vineyard Riesling 2018
Aromas of lavender, rose petal and jasmine tea are complemented by hints of spice and chalky-talc notes which lead into a soft, elegant yet flavoursome palate. A luxurious wine with a tautness on the palate giving it real focus, it is distinguished by a pronounced juicy citrus tone and underlying talc/quartz-like minerality. The finely textured acidity provides a sensuous mouthcoating of expressive fruit; think funky-tropical, making this a charmingly complex wine.
James Halliday – Hand-picked grapes were whole-bunch pressed immediately on arrival at the winery, cold-fermented, 8 weeks minimal intervention. Has class stamped all over it, but drink Isolation Ridge while this gets a fewmore (5+) years under its belt. 95 points. James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2020
World Wine – An outstanding single-vineyard wine from Frankland River. Aromatically engaging with gentle lime juice and blossom aromas. The palate has a core of sweet lemon creating a mouth-watering sensation, and there is a minerally undercurrent that adds depth and class. The wine is incredibly focused and intense. Limited quantities made. Excellent cellaring potential. Highly recommended. 96 points. Toni Paterson MW, The Real Review
