Express Winemakers Frankland Riesling 2015
his wild-fermented, unfined or filtered wine comes from the sandy granitic soils of one of Frankland’s oldest vineyards. A short time on skins and no settling prior to a spontaneous yet extended fermentation have leant some crunchy phenolics and plenty of distinctive flavours.
Floral and waxy notes entwine with a hint of gunpowder on the nose. The palate is bold with lively broad acid, generous length and a unique softness without becoming flabby, finishing with a lick of cleansing phenolics. The flavours are of ripe grapefruit, candied lemon rind and honeysuckle with some yeasty complexity.
