A profound construct of West Australian Riesling, from fruit grown to a fastidiously managed site at Frankland River, one of the most isolated vineyards in the world, the product of uncompromising standards in viticulture. The vineyard is planted to Geisenheim and Rhine Riesling clones, into ironstone gravel over loam and clay subsoils, on an undulating northeast facing slope. Isolation Ridge slowly opens up in the glass, exhibiting purity of flavour, exceptional balance and a refined natural acidity, which carries the wine today and well into the future.
Dry grown Geisenheim and Rhine Riesling vines, established in 1988 and trained to Scott Henry vertical shoot trellis, planted to organically managed, rich ironstone gravels over loam and clay sub soils. The long slow ripening periods of Frankland River encourage maximum development of flavour while maintaining the distinctive racy acidity and dry finish for which Riesling is renowned. Grapes are pressed immediately and juices settled overnight, before being racked, aiming to minimise intervention, capturing the purest and finest expression of fruit grown to Isolation Ridge. The organically grown Riesling is treated to a cool vinification in a mix of fermenters and neutral oak at low temperatures of less than 14°C
TASTING NOTES
Light green straw colour. Intense aromatics of ironstone flintiness, lashings of lime with lifted floral notes. Fine and elegant, yet fills the mouth with a concentrated mix of juicy lime and citrus notes followed by a core of spicy ironstone minerality. A generous mouth filling texture but with an underlying tightness showing length, balance and focus giving the wine personality and direction.

About Frankland Estate Wines
Frankland Estate was established in 1988 by Barrie Smith and Judi Cullam, they continue to be actively involved in every aspect of the vineyard and winery
They are assisted by a small, hardworking team who enjoy the diverse and idiosyncratic challenges associated with making wine. The Isolation Ridge vineyard lies on part of a farm where the family have run a wool growing enterprise since 1974. The decision to diversify their farming interests was inspired and informed by a tour of French vineyards Barrie and Judi undertook in 1985 and also by two vintages they worked at Chateau Senejac in Bordeaux. The winemaking philosophies at Frankland Estate reflect these influences as well as the hard earned lessons gained from some 17 vintages in the Frankland River region. Their approach to winemaking is based on the principle that the most significant characteristics of a wine come from the soil and the vineyard environment. They aim to make wines that reflect nature rather than the hand of the winemaker. Frankland Estate»
