Frankland Estate Poison Hill Vineyard Riesling 2020

95 Mike Bennie
Planted in 1988 the small 3 hectare Poison Hill vineyard lies just on the northern edge of the Frankland River town site. The vineyard name resulted from it being located on a hill where the Heartleaf Bush, poisonous to all but indigenous animals, is found. Poison Hill has unique white clay and weathered quartz soils that are reflected in a complex, alluringly perfumed, silky textured wine. Like all vineyards in the Frankland River region it benefits from the cool nights and long, slow ripening period prior to harvest that promote maximum flavour development while maintaining the distinctive vibrant acidity for which rieslings from this region are renowned.

Grapes are whole bunch pressed immediately on arrival at the winery with the juice left to settle in tank over night before being racked to fermentation vessel. The wine was then fermented in tank at low temperatures (less than 15°C) over 8 weeks with minimal intervention from our winemakers in order to obtain the purest expression of the pristine fruit from the Poison Hill vineyard.
Ralph Kyte-Powell
The wine is a glittering pale-yellow colour, and the nose is pungently varietal with scents of lemon sherbet, lime zest, white flowers and a light yeasty overtone. It’s appetising in the mouth, but at the same time very concentrated. Juicy, intense citrus flavours flow zesty through a long, tingling, steely finish. 95 points.
