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.
ORIGIN Western Australia
MAKER Frankland Estate
Buried deep in the heart of Western Australia’s most isolated wine region, Frankland Estate is as much apart of its natural landscape as it is a winery.
Located 250km east of Margaret River and inland from the wild and picturesque Great Southern coastline, we take our role as custodians of our land very seriously. We have invested a lot of time and energy into minimising our impact on the ecological balance of the region, nuturing the micro-biology of our soils and supporting causes to improve the health and future prosperity of our local fauna and flora.
Today Frankland Estate is a tightknit family affair. Our children Elizabeth and Hunter and their small familes live on the property and we all work together with a small, yet hardworking and enthusiastic team to produce distinctive and flavoursome wines.
