2013 Isolation Ridge Chardonnay


Unique in nature, our wines encompass a rich history. In 1956 renowned US viticulturalist Dr Harold Olmo identified the potential of the Frankland River Region to produce premium wines comparable to those of Bordeaux, France. Working two vintages in Bordeaux and touring French vineyards cemented Barrie and Judi’s vision to establish Frankland Estate in 1988..


Our Wines

We make wines that reflect nature rather than the hand of the wine­maker. Our belief is that the most significant characteristics of a wine come from the soil and vineyard environment. By nurturing the soil and adopting sustainable practices our wines have a depth, complexity and intensity of flavour.

  • SmithCullam Riesling 2015

    This kabinett style riesling (containing 30 grams of residual sugar) is made from select low yielding vines within the Isolation Ridge vineyard. The conditions to make this wine do not occur every year. Elevated levels of acidity leading up to harvest allow the fruit to be harvested in clean optimal condition. a very cold fermentation is undertaken in 1000 litre French oak foudre. A long fermentation period is finished early leaving some residual sugar to give optimal balance. This allows the wine to show its true generosity and intensity of flavour.
