Isolation Ridge Vineyard Riesling 2012

Isolation Ridge Vineyard Riesling 2012

96pts James Halliday, The Australian Wine Companion 

Bright straw-green; as ever, a distinguished riesling with its interwoven display of lime, apple and mineral that opens on the bouquet and expands along the length of the palate and its long, lazily uncoiling aftertaste.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
An extremely distinguished riesling that slowly opens up in the glass, this wine reflects the uncompromising criteria used in fruit selection. It has a purity of flavour and exceptional balance and a natural acidity that carries the wine now and for years to come.
Vineyard Notes
This wine was made from 100% Riesling grown in the Isolation Ridge vineyard at Frankland Estate. Riesling vines from two different clones were planted in 1988 on undulating northern and eastern facing slopes with duplex soils of ironstone gravel over a clay sub-soil. A number of trellis systems are used throughout the vineyard, which is situated 256 meters above sea level. The cool nights and long slow ripening periods typical of the Frankland River region allow maximum flavour development while maintaining the distinctive vibrant acidity for which Rieslings from this region are renowned. The vineyard is farmed according to certified organic principles and this is reflected in the clarity and complexity of the pristine fruit from the vineyard.
Winemaker Notes
Grapes are pressed immediately with the juice left to settle in tank over night before being racked and fermentation introduced. Our aim is to minimise intervention in order to obtain the purest and finest expression of the pristine fruit from the Isolation Ridge vineyard. This wine was fermented in tanks and (neutral) oak at low temperatures (less than 14 deg C) over 12 weeks. Vines are all dry grown practicing organic viticultural techniques.
