Western Australia


Frankland River


This wine was made from 100% Riesling grown in the Isolation Ridge vineyard at Frankland Estate. Riesling vines from two different clones were planted in 1988 on undulating northern and eastern facing slopes with duplex soils of ironstone gravel over a clay sub-soil. A number of trellis systems are used throughout the vineyard, which is situated 256 meters above sea level. The cool nights and long slow ripening periods typical of the Frankland River region allow maximum flavour development while maintaining the distinctive vibrant acidity for which Rieslings from this region are renowned. The vineyard is farmed according to certified organic principles and this is reflected in the clarity and complexity of the pristine fruit from the vineyard.

A touch of reduction on opening, giving way to crystalline minerality, fresh cut lemon and talc; dry and uncompromising laser-like acidity provides great energy, drive and length; purity is the key, with the hallmarks evident of another classic Isolation Ridge. 95 points - James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion
