About The Wine

There are only a few names on the shortlist for best Riesling producer in Australia and Frankland Estate is without a doubt one of them.

Their organically grown vineyards in the Great Southern region of Western Australia boast some of the finest Riesling fruit in the country. The Frankland Estate Riesling is a combination of their famous single vineyard wines set at a price point everyone can enjoy.

It has all the perfume and seduction that have become the hallmarks of Riesling from this region. One of the best around for the price, hands down.

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

Additional Info

From The Producer

This wine was made from 100% riesling grown in family’s estate vineyards. A selection of small ferments was made from parcels of fruit harvested in some younger vines planted in 2006 on a high ironstone rocky ridge in the ironstone “coffee rock” that is classic soil from the property at Frankland Estate. This combines with some of Frankland Estate’s original parcels of riesling planted in 1988.

Grapes are pressed immediately on arrival at the winery with the juice left to settle in tank over night before being racked. The wine was then fermented in stainless steel tanks at relatively low temperatures (less than 14 deg C) over 4-6 weeks with minimal intervention from our winemakers in order to obtain the purest expression of the pristine, organically grown fruit. The wine was then left on its fermentation lees prior to bottling.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Rich in the mouth with the floral stepping back on the palate and much more of the apples, pears and peaches taking the stage. I would advise getting a little lively with your food matches, there’s plenty of flavour and weight to work with and also crisp acidity to keep it all fresh. Start marinating stuff and chuck it on the grill, let your inner Jamie Oliver fly with big squeezes of citrus and freshly chopped herbs and serve with a big glass of this." - Curly Haslam-Coates (The Wine Front)

The Real Review

"Pale, green and bright in the glass. Aromas of guava, brown lime juice, grapefruit pith, ginger and melon skin. Sweet, juicy fruit on entry, citrus pith, brown lime, white peach, bruised apple and tangy acidity. Long, textured and layered." - Aaron Brasher (The Real Review)

Halliday Wine Companion

"Takes only a millisecond, once you taste the wine, for the mouth to flood with juicy lime flavours plus splashes of tropical fruits. Totally delicious now, but has the structure to develop well into the next decade." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

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. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

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. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 02 8376 8775 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
