The family’s main enterprise is sheep and wool production - Isolation Ridge Vineyard is situated within their 3,000 acre property and is planted on a regional mix of ironstone and limonite cemented sand, colloquially called coffee rock. This 74 acre vineyard was planted in 1988 and is certified organic by ACO (Australian Certified Organics). Winemaker Judi Cullam is assisted by her children, viticulturalist Elizabeth Smith and operational manager, Hunter Smith. Fruit for the Rocky Gully wines and the single vineyard Rieslings is sourced from certified organic growers in the Frankland River.

Though very youthful and showing mainly primary fruit, the 2012 Netley Road Riesling offers a quite complex nose with an abundance of mineral notes peppering the pure lemon-lime fruit and backed up by hints of orange blossom, brine, dill seed and white pepper. Light-bodied, dry and tightly wound on the palate, it has a crisp acid line cutting through the intense, multi-layered fruit and finishes long. Drink it 2015 to 2025+.

The plumpest of Frankland Estate’s three single-vineyard bottlings in 2012, Netley Road offers subdued lime and tobacco aromas, then flavors of tangerine and pineapple. It’s softer than the others, but displays an attractively chalky element to the textured finish. Drink now-2020.
