About The Wine

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!

About Frankland Estate

Frankland Estate are one of the leading producers in the Frankland River region. Family owned and operated since 1988, their major focus on their certified organically grown fruit that reflects its terroir rather than the hand of the winemaker.

Their cool climate Rieslings are regarded as some of the best in the region and the country with several single vineyard releases that could be a contender for Australia's Best Riesling.

Frankland Estate is a cutting a mean wave through the industry and picking up a lot of recognition in the process.

Halliday Wine Companion

"Captivating and powerful from the word go starting with its lime and grapefruit flavours, wet rocks before it moves onto a mineral sensation with chalky acidity. Everything balanced with laser-precision accuracy and a joy to behold." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)
