In a 1955 study of potential grapegrowing sites, renowned Californian viticulturalist Dr Harold Olmo identified Frankland River as one of the most promising prospects in Australia. The wines of Frankland Estate prove he was right. They display finesse and balance and an incisive expression of cool-climate winegrowing. Founded by Judi Cullam and Barrie Smith, this is indisputably one of the nation's most important and consistent Riesling producers.
Powerful, graceful, sleek and exceptionally long, it’s a thoroughbred riesling of concentrated apple, citrus and grape-y fruit character splashed over almond and clove spice characters. The wine courses over the palate, a concentrated flow of delicious, detailed flavour, refreshed with fine shards of acidity. The finish is nutty and awesomely savoury. A phenomenal wine.
