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
Lifted aromas of kaffir lemon, wet stone and floralnotes lead to flavors of citrus, spicy minerality and lively acidity.

 Wine Advocate 92 points (Aug 2013)
The 2012 Isolation Ridge Riesling has pretty scents of fresh lemon juice and pink grapefruit with hints of yuzu zest, clover honey and a whiff of baker’s yeast. Light-bodied, dry and very zippy in the mouth, it’s a real “pick-me-up” of a wine that over-delivers on the finish. It should drink best 2014 to 2024+.
 Wine Enthusiast 92 points (Sep 2013)
An austere Riesling in the traditional Australian style, the 2012 Isolation Ridge Riesling appears destined to have a long life. Penetrating lime aromas lead into a palate that’s high strung and tight, but lined with mouthwatering fruit. An electric vibrancy of citrus and wet stones lingers on the finish. Drink now-2030. - Cellar Selection
