2020 vintage reviews below

Gary Walsh, www.winefront.com.au, Sep 20
Lovely wine here. It has a blossom perfume over lime, green pear and green apple, texture is all soft chalkiness, acidity also firm but gentle in a way, maybe some fennel in there as well, and plenty of crunch and pear skin grip on a long finish. Unusually for Frankland River Riesling, really easy to enjoy as a young wine. Really like this. Almost feels Italianate and Soave-like, which is likely a weird thing to say, but there you have it. 94 pts

Ray Jordan, The West Australian, Oct 20
Has the powerful intensity that is what the 2020 vintage is all about. Lime and bath salt with a spicy lift on the nose. The palate is super concentrated but with a linear structure and profile. There is so much in here with its citrus and slightly apple-y characters most appealing. 93 pts

Huon Hooke, www.therealreview.com, Sep 20
Very light, almost pale colour, but bright and youthful. The aromas of passionfruit, lemon and lime fresh and vital, crisp and tangy, with a lean, delicate profile and a dry but gently fruity end-palate. Very good line and balance. It's still tight and somewhat in its shell, and will no doubt expand over the next few months. 94 pts

Tasting Notes
Striking pale straw with green hues. Lime sherbert, ginger, Jonathan apples and a distinctive regional bath salts perfume. The palate is vibrant, cool and intense with pithy citrus, lychee and honeysuckle blossom. A fine spine of fresh, pillowy acidity drives the flavours and texture to a long, briny and refreshing finish.

Production Notes
The fruit was hand-picked from block C and D of our Powderbark vineyard in Frankland River with careful attention to eliminate any bunches with excessive sun exposure. The fruit was whole bunch pressed, lightly settled and then naturally fermented in stainless steel tanks to achieve a vibrant and expressive reflection of the purity of Frankland River Riesling. Following fermentation the wine rested on its lees to both preserve freshness and build texture prior to bottling.
