Frankland Estate Riesling Frankland River Isolation Ridge Vineyard 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

This Riesling has all the classic hallmarks of the variety. An intriguingkerosene nose is backed up by crisp green apple notes and delicious weight onthe palate. Tantalisingly crisp acidity and just a hint of spritz make thisappetising Riesling a delight to savour now.

Fran k land Estate was estab lished in1988 by Bar rie Smith and Judi Cul lam who con­tinue to be actively involved in every aspect of the vine yard and win ery. They are now assisted by their daugh ter Eliz a beth Smith, son Hunter Smith and a small, hard work­ing team who enjoy the diverse and idio syn cratic chal lenges asso ci ated with work ing in a fam ily business. The Iso la tion Ridge vine yard lies on part of a farm where the fam ily have run a wool grow ing enter prise since 1974. The deci sion to diver sify their farm ing inter ests was inspired and informed by a tour of French vine yards Bar rie and Judi under took in 1985 and also by two vin tages they worked at Chateau Sene jac in Bordeaux. The wine mak ing philoso phies at Fran k land Estate reflect these influ ences as well as the hard-earned lessons gained from some 17 vin tages in the Fran k land River region. Our approach to wine mak ing is based on the prin ci ple that the most sig nif i cant char­ac ter is tics of a wine come from the soil and the vine yard envi ron ment. We aim to make wines that reflect nature rather than the hand of the wine maker. This is the basis of our com mit ment to sus tain able farm ing and to work ing the land in accord with the cycles of nature. We care fully nur ture the health of the soils in our vine yard and only take from our vine yards as much as can be replaced by nat ural processes. Our use of viti cul tural prac tices will result in us gain ing organic cer ti fi ca tion in 2009 but is already evi dent in the com plex ity, depth and inten sity of flavour in our wines. Read less

Classically taut and tight lemon, lime incipient petrol and slightly vegetal forest undergrowth note rise from the glass like a rising souffle. In the mouth this is chiseled elegance with a great intensity of flavor yet little weight and no fat. It's got cut and definition to spare and will no doubt improve with some time in the cellar but this is very fine now with excellent purity to the citrus toned fruits and a lovely emergent mineral tone on the finale. 92pts

Der 2007er Riesling hat ein intensives Bouquet, das nach Mirabellen, weissem Pfirsich und Rosenblätter duftet. Im Gaumen sehr komplex, feiner Limettenton,und die typische Mineralität eines trockenen Rieslings aus alten Reben.
