"A delightful citrusy, appley nose with some stone fruit in the background. Complex, textured and layered example with good development potential.- Decanter


"A very crystalline riesling on the nose with hints of white citrus flower and blossom. The soft and delicate approach builds with a combination of lime and bath salts. Texture, spice and delicate acidity give the wine focus and fantastic length. Consistent with the now well-established Rieslings from Frankland Estate this wine displays the balance of pristine fruit flavours and laser-like acidity, medalled with generosity of fruit."


 

Frankland Estate


"For an estate-wide expression, 2017 Frankland Estate Riesling offers quality and value hand-in-hand. It's a limey, bright riesling of zingy acidity and crunchy texture. The perfume is voluminous in Thai spice, mixed citrus character and dried apple scents. The palate is bracing with its citrus tang, but finishes with a pool of gently sweet, mouth-filling fruitiness. It's one of those summery whites that is best suited to a deep chill and consumed while your legs are dangling in a swimming pool."


- Mike Bennie, Gourmet Traveller Wine


"Pale colour and a fresh Kaffir lime leaf and subtly tropical fruit aroma - passionfruity. The palate is juicy and orange-citrusy with again a twist of passionfruit. Delicious soft fruit and a smidgin of sweetness. Quite good intensity and purity of fruit. Lovely drinking." 93 pts
