Frankland Estate Chardonnay Frankland River Isolation Ridge Vineyard 2008
Brilliant pale gold. Complex aromas of minerals and white peach with lifted exotic fruit followed by a restrained spice note. Lifted citrus and grapefruit with discrete white peach flavours. 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. 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.
