Winemaker Notes

Pale straw in color, Frankland Estate’s 2013 Isolation Ridge Riesling is complex and highly perfumed with alluring lime blossom, kaffir lime and talcum powder notes, backed up by spicy, mineral undertones. The palate is soft and approachable, with intense, tightly-interwoven citrus-lemon flavors and vibrant lime-infused acidity, complimented by silky-textures. Its power and intensity is balanced by a fragile delicacy and lightness of touch that persists through to the long, refreshing finish.

Consistent with the now well-established Isolation Ridge style this wine reflects both the low-yielding, dry growing conditions experienced in the 2013 vintage as well as the benefits of not being released until 12 months after the vintage. The balance of pristine fruit flavors and laser-like acidity result in an exceptional wine that can be enjoyed now or cellared with the confidence it will continue to develop further complexity for many years to come.

Perhaps one of the most isolated vineyard sites in the world, it seemed only fitting that this vineyard site be called "Isolation Ridge Vineyard". This range of single vineyard, organically grown wines reflects the uncompromising passion and devotion Frankland Estate has to making unique wines that reflect a true sense of place.

Critical Acclaim

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2013 Isolation Ridge Riesling opens with notes of freshly squeezed limes, orange blossoms and clover honey marked by hints of crushed stones and coriander seed. Light-bodied, dry and showing a great backbone of racy acidity, it finishes long and zesty. Drink it now to 2023+.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
This is really lean and tightly focused, seemingly built for aging—or for drinking young with raw oysters. Complex aromas of damp moss and petrichor give way to simpler flavors of mixed citrus that finish long and tart. Drink now–2025.

Frankland Estate A Family-Operated Winery Winery Image

Frankland Estate was established in 1988 by Barrie Smith and Judi Cullam who continue to be actively involved in every aspect of the vineyard and winery. They are now assisted by their daughter Elizabeth Smith, son Hunter Smith and a small, hard­work­ing team who enjoy the diverse and idiosyncratic challenges associated with work­ing in a fam­ily business. The winemaking philosophies at Frankland Estate reflect these influences as well as the hard-earned lessons gained from some 17 vintages in the Frankland River region. Our approach to winemaking is based on the principle that the most significant characteristics of a wine come from the soil and the vineyard environment. We aim to make wines that reflect nature rather than the hand of the winemaker. This is the basis of our commitment to sustainable farming and to working the land in accord with the cycles of nature. We carefully nurture the health of the soils in our vineyard and only take from our vineyards as much as can be replaced by natural processes. Our use of viticultural practices resulted in us gaining organic certification in 2009 with our 2010 vintage wines being released with the certified organic “bud” logo.

Riesling possesses a remarkable ability to reflect the character of wherever it is grown while still maintaining its identity. A regal variety of incredible purity and precision, this versatile grape can be just as enjoyable dry or sweet, young or old, still or sparkling and can age longer than nearly any other white variety. Somm Secret—Given how difficult it is to discern the level of sweetness in a Riesling from the label, here are some clues to find the dry ones. First, look for the world “trocken.” (“Halbtrocken” or “feinherb” mean off-dry.) Also a higher abv usually indicates a drier Riesling.
