Established in 1988 by Barrie Smith and Judi Cullam, Frankland Estate is a family owned and operated winery located in the cool climate region of Frankland River, Western Australia. The family’s main enterprise is sheep and wool production - Isolation Ridge Vineyard is situated within their 3,000 acre property and is planted on a regional mix of ironstone and limonite cemented sand, colloquially called coffee rock. This 74 acre vineyard was planted in 1988 and is certified organic by ACO (Australian Certified Organics). Winemaker Judi Cullam is assisted by her children, viticulturalist Elizabeth Smith and operational manager, Hunter Smith. Fruit for the Rocky Gully wines and the single vineyard Rieslings is sourced from certified organic growers in the Frankland River.

Tasting notes
This regional blend expresses the core attributes of Riesling grown in the Frankland River - nuanced notes of ripe stone fruit, citrus and spice are nicely framed by minerality and vibrant acidity.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 89 points (Dec 2012)
The 2012 Rocky Gully Riesling has intense aromas of fresh lemon juice, lime cordial and pink grapefruit with a touch of wet pebbles. Intensely fruited, wonderfully crisp, light -bodied and zesty in the mouth, it offers a long invigorating finish. Drink it now to 2017+.
 Wine Enthusiast 89 points (Sep 2013)
As a straightahead Aussie Riesling for drinking young alongside raw oysters, this has few equals. Scents of petrichor and fresh flower-shop greenery mingle easily on the nose, while the crispness of the high-acid backbone resounds on the palate, ending on a talc-like note.

Technical notes
The grapes were sourced from different sites around the region, gently pressed, fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and aged sur lie for three months.
