Frankland Estate 'Alter Weg' Riesling 2022


Alter Weg translates to the ‘old way’, describing our approach to this Riesling. Certified organic, ripe balanced riesling fruit is harvested and gently pressed to large format barrel where it undergoes wild yeast fermentation. A further 10 months of ageing on full lees in barrel result in a superbly textured riesling with approachability and generosity of fruit, supported by the creamy textural element of this vibrant wine.

"Consistently among the finest iterations of riesling in the New World. Picked ripe. Wild fermented and aged in large format wood. Pithy, mid-weighted and textural, eking out a different groove across the palate with each sip, while riding a waft of phenolics as much as a skein of bright, maritime acidity for its push, pull and jittery length. Lemon squash, lime blossom, ginger and crushed granny smith. The overall impression is one of succulence over hardness. Lovely drinking." 95pts | Ned Goodwin |
