Sommelier Notes

Reisling has been a much maligned variety, mainly due to some interesting examples made in the 70s. The world is a better place for Reisling since the Smith Family at Frankland Estate came along. The 2016 Estate has quite a bit of texture with its chalky mouth-feel, and also a fair amount of perfume and spicy peppery flavours. Lime, slightly jagged, but shapely acidity, and a cranking savoury quinine laced with finish. It has plenty of character.
