Frankland Estate ‘Poison Hill’ Riesling 2015

Tasting Notes

This is a bit riper and richer than previous vintages with more fruit weight and a touch of sweetness, which is not necessarily a bad thing. Here you get all the citrus and floral notes on the nose one would expect while the palate combines clean succulent assorted citrus flavors with some steely minerality and a vein of acidity that drives the gently sweet fruit flavors to an impressive finish. Showing impeccable balance this should drink beautifully over the next 5 plus years quite easily

There is always (of course) a difference between the Poison Hill and Isolation Ridge, but seldom is it more obvious than this year. This is immediate and naked power, with a cascade of lime and grapefruit flavours running through the palate, finish and aftertaste. Ripe, to be sure, but how enjoyable. It’s an orange and apples comparison, yet with the same outcome.
