About

If you’re a fan of Australian Riesling, then Frankland Estate’s Isolation Ridge release just has to be in your cellar.

Sitting alongside the Poison Hill Riesling, this wine really paints the picture of what Hunter Smith and the Frankland Estate team believe Great Southern Riesling should look like. Organically grown, single vineyard wines of startling purity and intensity. Absolutely top of the Riesling tree in Aus.

The 2016 release Isolation Ridge has a touch more residual sugar than previous years as Hunter looks for more generosity in this wine on release.

Mission accomplished. This is a triumphant wine and truly one of the country’s premier Rieslings. Try it while you can!

What It Tastes Like

Apple blossoms, fresh juicy limes, bickfords cordial, such a piercing perfume. Great stuff. It’s definitely lusher than last year. More generous in flavour with orange jellies and a citrus but with structure and crystalline acidity at its core. A mineral edge carves out a track through the finish like a diamond cutting glass. Excellent Riesling.
