Professional Wine Reviews for Frankland Estate Riesling Estate Isolation Ridge 2014

Rated 97 by Decanter
A wine that has now become so consistently great, it is a liquid tribute to the dedication of the Cullam family, to their vineyard and winemaking; this 2014 is no exception. The nose is reminiscent of lime juice on crushed rocks and for a riesling lover that is basically aromatic nirvana - there are some gentle florals and a spicy edge too. The palate has deep-set power and striking purity; it draws deep and then fires like an arrow in a straight lime-drenched line of tangy citrus flavor, holding long, nailing the target. Exhilarating now, this will age for more than a decade without raising a sweat. (Suckling)

Additional Information on Frankland Estate Riesling Estate Isolation Ridge 2014

Winery: Frankland Estate

Varietal: Riesling

Riesling grapes have been grown in and around central Europe for centuries, and over time, they became the lasting symbol of south Germany's ancient and proud wine culture. Whilst the reputation of German wines abroad has in the past been mixed, the Germans themselves take an enormous amount of pride in their wineries, and Riesling grapes have now spread around the globe, growing anywhere with the correct climate in which they can thrive. Riesling grape varietals generally require much cooler climatic conditions than many other white grapes, and they are generally considered to be a very 'terroir expressive' varietal, meaning that the features and characteristics of the terroir they are grown on comes across in the flavors and aromas in the bottle. It is this important feature which has allowed Riesling wines to be elevated into the category of 'fine' white wines, as the features of the top quality bottles are generally considered to be highly unique and offer much to interest wine enthusiasts.

Country: Australia

With over sixteen thousand hectares of Australian land now under vine, Australia has become something of a world leader in regards to wine production. One of Australia's key attributes to their success has been their willingness to leave traditional vineyard practices to one side, and develop techniques which are perfectly suited to a New World country. Modern Australian wineries take into consideration the climate and the unique soil types which cover much of their country, and have had fantastic results from cross-breeding programs and blending practices which make the most of the grape varietals which thrive most successfully there, notably the Shiraz and Chardonnay grapes. In recent years, Australia has been lauded as the 'most influential' wine producing country in the world, and the rest of the New World is looking down under for inspiration, and the ability to produce comparable fine wines on their own terrain.
