Established in 1988 by Barrie Smith and Judi Cullam, Frankland Estate is a family owned and operated winery located in the Frankland River district, a cool climate region situated 124 miles inland from the Southwest coast of Western Australia. Isolation Ridge Vineyard sits within the family’s 3,000 acre property on which the family has run their sheep and wool growing enterprise since 1974. Their 74 acre vineyard was planted in 1988 to regional soils (aka coffee rock) of ironstone and limonite cemented sand. The vines slowly mature over long dry summers and cold wet winters, are dry farmed and yields are kept low. Winemaker Judi Cullam is assisted by her children, viticulturalist Elizabeth Smith and operational manager, Hunter Smith. Isolation Ridge was certified organic by ACO (Australian Certified Organics) and the fruit for Rocky Gully wines and the single vineyard Rieslings is sourced from locally certified organic growers...

Tasting notes
The wine presents lifted aromas of kaffir lemon andflorals. The coffee rock soils lend notes of minerality which are framed by flavors of ripe citrus, spicy minerality and lively acidity.

The 2012 Isolation Ridge Riesling has pretty scents of fresh lemon juice and pink grapefruit with hints of yuzu zest, clover honey and a whiff of baker’s yeast. Light-bodied, dry and very zippy in the mouth, it’s a real “pick-me-up” of a wine that over-delivers on the finish. It should drink best 2014 to 2024+.
 Wine Enthusiast 92 points (Sep 2013)
An austere Riesling in the traditional Australian style, the 2012 Isolation Ridge Riesling appears destined to have a long life. Penetrating lime aromas lead into a palate that’s high strung and tight, but lined with mouthwatering fruit. An electric vibrancy of citrus and wet stones lingers on the finish. Drink now-2030. - Cellar Selection

Technical notes
The grapes were gently pressed into stainless steel tanks, settled for 24 hours and fermented in tanks and neutral oak barrels at low temperatures.
