Frankland Estate Isolation Ridge Vineyard Riesling

Isolation Ridge is Western Australia’s finest riesling, and 2013 is one of its greatest vintages yet, a wine of crystalline purity and scintillating minerality. Breathtakingly pristine aromas of lime drops, lime blossom and granny smith apples introduce a palate of impressive lime and green apple fruit concentration. It’s light on its feet yet confidently poised, framed in achingly delicate structure of fine, mineral mouth feel. The finish lingers long and lively with beautifully fragrant lift. $24 at Banks (2012), $29 at Cracka at Wine Box Warehouse (2013).
