Frankland Estate Alter Weg Riesling 2021


Frankland Estate Alter Weg Riesling 2021
Alter Weg translates to the “old way” describing our approach to this Riesling. Ripe balanced Riesling fruit is harvested and gently pressed to large format barrel where it undergoes wild yeast fermentation. A further 10 months of aging on full lees in barrel result in a superbly textured Riesling with approachability and generosity of fruit supported by the creamy textural element of this vibrant riesling. Lightly golden colour supports the slightly riper tone and more oxidative approach to juice. Tangerine notes and a seductive saline morishness support the delicate aroma of spice and the juicy ripe citrus tones. Mineral yet juicy palate, initially a very slight reduction aroma of gun smoke/ironstone gives way to the fruitfulness and volume of this wine as it opens up. Saline and crystalline notes give freshness and brightness which is followed by a soft textural line that gives the wine a fullness and completeness. The tension of this wine masterfully balances the fruitful yet savoury palate with a deliciousness and mouth-watering finish from the fine well-rounded acidity. The barrel maturation gives the wine a notable roundness and fullness whilst in keeping with the fine line achieved by our organic Rieslings at Frankland Estate. A complex balanced Riesling that will gain further complexity with age.
