Frankland Estate Poison Hill Vineyard Riesling 2016

What do these icons mean?

It’s always exciting when the new single-vineyard Rieslings from Frankland Estate come out. Isolation Ridge and Poison Hill are two of the finest Riesling sites in Australia, true and expressive patches of dirt that bring out the beauty of this grape and the pristine growing conditions of the Frankland River region in WA. Quality-wise, these go neck-and-neck every year and the bar is set dizzyingly high. The 2015s were tied on 97 points each in last year’s Halliday Wine Companion and it would be no surprise to see history repeat itself.

"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's review of the 2015: There is always (of course) a difference between the Poison Hill and Isolation Ridge, but seldom is it more obvious than this year. This is immediate and naked power, with a cascade of lime and grapefruit flavours rushing through the palate, finish and aftertaste. Ripe, to be sure, but how enjoyable. It's an orange and apples comparison, yet with the same outcome. 97 points

The Wine Front – Single vineyard riesling. It’s an understated wine and yet it announces itself. It’s slate and gently reductive; it boasts lime rind and talc characters; it bursts with aroma but feels measured on the palate. There’s nothing wild or flamboyant about it and yet it really draws you in. Impressive by its own design.

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
