"Frankland River riesling fresh off the line. Maybe it’s a little round-shouldered and, therefore, not as persistent as you might hope, but the burst of apple, pear and citrus flavour is attractive and at the price, it represents both good drinking and value.

Vintage: A dry Winter and fleeting Spring was followed by a warm growing season with welcome rainfall in December and January leading to full, healthy canopies enabling excellent yields and great flavour development.

Colour: Brilliant pale straw with green flecks.

Palate: Intense flavours of lemon, grapefruit and lychee with a soft mouthwatering acidity giving freshness and length to the palate.

Cellaring: Whilst ready to drink now, this wine will gain in complexity over the next five to eight years.

Alcohol: 12.5%
