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

Although they originated in Germany's beautiful Rhine Valley, the Riesling grape soon spread around the world, where it thrives in many countries with a colder climate which can support this pale and unique grapes. Riesling grapes are considered one of the finest varietals on earth, capable of expressing fascinating features of the soil type they are grown on, resulting in some highly interesting wines with plenty to offer those who are looking for something different. Riesling grapes are also noted for their aromas, which tend to be highly perfumed, floral and often with smoky notes accentuating their unusual flavor Because this was always the predominant grape grown in Germany and other such countries, Riesling wineries have always been keen to experiment with its range. This has resulted in dry white wines, sparkling wines, semi sweet wines and several others, but the finest examples are usually considered to be the Riesling dessert wines. These are occasionally made with unusual processes, including the 'eiswine' method, in which the grapes are allowed to freeze in the early frosts, or by allowing the development of 'noble rot', which withers the grapes and results in some truly spectacular and unusual flavors.

Country: Australia

Whilst every Australian state has some level of wine production, it is in South Australia and on the island of Tasmania where the finest wines are made to the highest quantities. Here, the scorching Australian sun is a little tamer, and the heat is tempered by brisk oceanic winds, making the climate of these regions ideal for vineyard cultivation. The Tamar Valley on Tasmania has been making waves internationally in recent years, as both Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grape varietals are thriving there and resulting in hugely flavorful wines, which are at once distinctly Australian, yet remain unique and interesting enough to surprise and impress. Elsewhere in the country, the Syrah grape (known locally as Shiraz) reigns supreme, as the long, hot summers allow these grapes to ripen fully and lend their intensely fruit-forward character to the ruby red Australian wines, which have such international appeal.
