Tasting Notes

The 2022 has a lovely combination of spice and dried pear with slight citrus notes on the nose. Stone fruit, dried summer grass and earthy tones are supported by delicate white and yellow florals and a juicy fruitfulness. The palate is delicate but fleshed out with some textural generosity and a fine weight and line. Textured and linear yet generous in flavour. The spice and floral mix are undeniably Grüner Veltliner. Fresh bright and delicious, this wine will age nicely and gain complexity. Organically grown, vinified and estate bottled.

Winemakers Note

Frankland Estate has grafted 0.5ha to Grüner Veltliner, which grows on the top of a lean ridge to make the VSP-trained vines work hard, sitting on an east-facing slope so they get the morning sun rather than the more intense afternoon sun. The vines are farmed according to the Smith Cullam family's standard organic regime. Berries and bunches are 20-30% bigger than Riesling, with reasonably tight bunches. The juice is about equally split between barrel and tank. It's left it on lees for as long as possible - in this case until early August. The lees bring a little softness, and Grüner has a softer acid profile than Riesling anyway, plus there's that small bit of residual sugar to open the wine up on the palate.
