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 grow near the site. This Riesling vineyard produces fruit of mind-bending intensity. It's a benchmark wine for the Great Southern region.

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. This is our kind of poison!

Critic Reviews

Halliday Wine Companion

"Organically certified, this address has loosened up a conventional strut of austerity, to a swagger of confidence, textural detail and poise. This new stance is embellished with optimally ripe fruit evincing care, love for the land and authority. From white clay, this is a rich and spicy riesling, reminiscent of great Germanic expressions over the sour Aussie norm. A forcefield of palate-staining intensity. Vinous. Extracted righteously. Honest to place and what that brings, be the alcohol a bit higher. This is juicy, powerful and complex. Compelling length. Quince, lemon oil, apricot pith and tonic." - Ned Goodwin (Halliday Wine Companion)

The Wine Front

"Rich style here, all ripe lime, vanilla, spice, guava and ripe apple. It’s amply textured, almost creamy and leesy, pie apple and lime, zesty acidity, and a chalky finish of lime rind and parmesan rind. Bold, but interesting. And very good, but the Isolation Ridge is the pick in 2019." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine.
