About

Frankland Estate is without question one of Australia's finest producers of Riesling, and their single vineyard releases from across the beautiful Frankland River region that have put them on the map. The Poison Hill Vineyard Riesling is so named for the poisonous clovers that exist near to the site, it produces Riesling fruit of mind-bending intensity. This 2016 is sensational. With the needle-like precision that can only be found in the best Rieslings, this shows so much concentration of fruit it almost hurts. Simply wonderful Riesling from one of the country's finest exponents of the variety, and my kind of poison!

What it Tastes Like

Ping! Dry, tight, linear Riesling in all its glory. There's lemons and tonic, coiled around a steel bar of searing acid. Dart like. It strikes with the awesome precision of a Taipan. Lean, searing racy Riesling. Steel. Ironstone. Orange peel. Crunchy finish of lemon and quarry rocks. Absolute belter.
