Frankland Estate Riesling 2015



This is an exciting wine.  It is among the best young rieslings I have tasted and is from Frankland Estate in the Frankland River region in Great Southern in Western Australia.  And here I was hoping to buy less wine over the next couple of months ... Its aromatics are saline, with a mineral and lime overlay.  The palate has wonderful length on the finish and is dry with a medium, even slightly plumper, body and flavours reminding of lemon, lime and minerals, bound together by a saline seam of fresh acidity.  Utterly delicious.
