Featuring this month – NETLEY ROAD from Frankland Estate
Netley Road Riesling 2014 from award winning Frankland Estate in WA is a must for the riesling aficionado.
Frankland Estate in WA’s Great Southern region makes extraordinary riesling. Fruit sourced from a 44 year old single vineyard has produced gorgeous riesling here with its soft floral and juicy lime aromas with wonderful combination of power and elegance (only comes from old vine fruit) balanced by lipsmacking acidity. The 2014 has the goods …juicy, generous and mouthwatering … lemon, lime sorbet, spice, fennel, mandarine. Gorgeous length of flavour and balance. Top shelf riesling indeed!
Other Favourites this month...
Falesco Sangiovese 2010 hailing from Umbria (South of Tuscany) will win you over with it’s richer and darker expression of sangiovese and its end of vintage price! This medium to full bodied Sangiovese cries out for food … brimming with black fruit and expressive aromas of ripe black cherries, blackberries and plums. Plenty of density and concentration of fruit with firm tannins. Last remaining cases of this vintage at this very special price.
Antonio Galloni, Wine Advocate, June 2011 “… It is a great value. “
Newly released 2012 vintage has the goods thanks to another great season in Burgundy from this highly respected producer. The 2012 harvest will be remembered for three things: the outstanding quality produced, the tragically low yields and the marked increase in prices across the region. Love the purity, freshness, depth and energy of this Bourgogne. (This is possibly even more refined than the brilliant 2010). It is precise with beautifully ripe supple tannins. Vive La France! Stock up because sadly Burgundy prices will continue to rise as the $Aus is predicted to weaken even further!
