Frankland Estate Isolation Ridge Riesling 2010, Frankland River, WA

Frankland Estate Isolation Ridge Riesling 2010 Margaret River Tim Adams Pinot Gris 2013 Clare Valley Simple Palates Seriously

AUD$35. I pulled this one out after having left it pick up a bit of age. I had hoped for some character development, but I feel that its rate of progression suggests this is a 2-3 year drinking wine. Or maybe past 10-years, I don’t know. Pours a lovely light yellow gold colour, looks young. But a well-developed nose with that characteristic kerosene TDN aroma, blows off to reveal sweet citrus floral and lime grassiness. A medium+ bodied wine, great clean acidity balanced by a slight perceived sweetness. Good intensity of citrus fruit, majority fades out quickly now leaving linger notes of lemon fruit. Current vintage 2014. Drink now. 88.
