Professional Wine Reviews for Frankland Estate Netley Road Riesling 2014

Rated 92 by Stephen Tanzer
Light, green-tinged yellow. Vibrant, mineral-laced aromas of pear, nectarine and white flowers, with iodine and kerosene qualities building in the glass. Supple and seamless in texture, offering sappy pit and citrus fruit flavors and a hint of fennel. Shows very good heft and thrust on the broad, subtly smoky finish, which clings with strong tenacity and building spiciness. This Riesling weighs in at 13% alcohol, which is on the high side for this producer.
Rated 92 by Robert Parker
The 2014 Netley Road Vineyard Riesling has a profoundly scented nose of lime cordial, lemon tart and pink grapefruit with chalk dust and coriander seed hints. Light-bodied, dry and tightly wound, though still very youthful it provides nice harmony even at this early stage with a long lively finish.

Winery Frankland Estate

Varietal: Riesling

The pale skinned fruits of the Riesling grapevine have been grown in and around Germany's Rhine Valley for centuries, and contributed much to the country's wine culture. Today, Riesling grapes are grown and processed in several countries around the world, where they are prized for their ability to grow well in colder climates, and their unique flavors and characteristics. Riesling grapes produce an impressive array of wines, including fine semi sweet and dessert wines, to excellent dry white wines and sparkling varieties, all which allow the grape to shine through as a premier example of an excellent white wine varietal. One of the things which makes Riesling such a special grape is the fact that it is highly 'terroir expressive', meaning that the features of the land it is grown on can come across well in the flavors and aromas in the wine. As such, it isn't unusual to find flavors of white stone, or smoky ash-like notes in a fine Riesling alongside the more usual orchard fruit flavors more commonly associated with good white wines.

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.
