Frankland Estate Chardonnay Frankland River Isolation Ridge Vineyard 2007
Brilliant pale gold in colour, this wine has complex aromas of minerals and white peach with lifted exotic fruit followed by a restrained spice note. The palate is lifted citrus and grapefruit with discrete white peach flavours. It is generous and mouth filling on the front palate with hints of nut and exotic fruits followed by a chalky minerality running through the back palate with fresh acidity keeping the palate tight and focused. This is a complex powerful wine showing both restraint and finesse with balanced acidity keeping the wine focused achieving great length. Ready to drink now this wine will gain in complexity and reward cellaring over the next 5 years.
