Rocky Gully Riesling

Rocky Gully Riesling

Frankland River, Western Australia


Winemaker: Hunter Smith
Vineyard/Year: Rocky Gully / 2017
Being poured at: The Langham

Frankland River is one of the coolest wine-growing regions in Western Australia with 2017 being an exceptional year for Riesling.

The Rocky Gully is made by the 5-star rated Frankland Estate located in the wilderness of WA’s Great Southern region and was planted in 1988 by Barrie Smith and Judy Cullam. Winemaking is by brother-and-sister Hunter and Elizabeth Smith, whose combined experience takes in cool climate Hawke’s Bay and the traditional bastions of Europe. Hunter says the Rocky Gully philosophy is to make wines with plenty of personality. He says Rocky Gully is “fresh, generous and showing true regionality; quintessential Frankland River Riesling at an everyday price.”

Tasting notes

Generous blossom and stone fruit, citrus and melon on the nose. Bath salt, talc and delicate spice undertones. A nicely weighted wine with a generosity of flavour and white stone fruit. Delicate and precise on the palate with generosity of fruit, persistent length of flavour and soft texture.
