Rocky Gully Riesling 2022
SPECIAL Dozen Buy.
Rocky Gully Wines hail from the award winning Frankland Estate in Frankland River, the coolest and most isolated wine-growing region in Western Australia. Warm days, cool nights (maritime influenced by the proximity to the Great Southern Ocean – means milder summers and winters) optimum ripening conditions, sustainable organic practices and a pristine pollution free environment are all contributing factors to the fine wines it produces. Frankland Estate in 2010 were certified organic. They call the Rocky Gully wines their “second generation of Frankland Estate” and these are more than just a mere second label … same pristine quality of fruit and uncompromising quality at a bargain price.
“…It’s one of the best entry-level Rieslings I have encountered from anywhere, at a better price than all of them.” Phillip White, Drinkster blog
Always such a reliable, great-value Riesling from the Smith Cullam family of Frankland Estate, one of Australia’s undisputed champions of this variety. Fresh, pure and with generous Riesling flavour, it never fails to hit the spot. It shows abundant blossom and stone fruit, citrus and melon on the nose. Bath salt, talc and delicate spice undertones. A nicely weighted wine with a generosity of flavour and white stone fruit. Delicate and precise on the palate with generosity of fruit, persistent length of flavour and soft texture.
Review for 2021 .. 91 points, Gary Walsh, The Wine Front “They’re not afraid of a bit of weight in their Rieslings at Frankland Estate. And that’s no bad thing. A touch wild and reductive with a fenugreek over green apple, melon and nectarine. It’s a little spicy, with a fairly thick almost cheesy texture, savoury bits and dried herb, firm chalky texture, green apple acidity, and a flavoursome quinine-laced finish of good length. A bit of oomph here, but also stylish and individual.”
