A ubiquitous treasure, Frankland Estate is a family owned and operated boutique winery, buried deep in the heart of Western Australia’s most isolated wine region. Located 250km east of Margaret River and inland from the wild and picturesque Great Southern coastline, Frankland Estate was established in 1988 by Barrie Smith and Judi Cullam. Today they are joined by their children Elizabeth and Hunter and a small, yet hardworking and enthusiastic team to produce high quality flavoursome wines.
We are committed to sustainable farming, organic viticulture, carefully nurturing the health of the soils in our vineyard, and only taking from our land as much as what can later be replaced by natural processes. Our appreciation for the environment in which we work ensures we continue to grow with our land in accordance to the cycles of nature.
Our passion for sustainable farming was recognized in 2009, when we were awarded an organic certification. Additionally, the use of our viticultural practices is strongly evident through the complexity, depth, and intensity of flavour within our unique wines.
The Frankland River region and Frankland Estate have proven it is capable of producing world class riesling. The Rocky Gully Riesling provides an every day drinking style; fresh, generous and showing true regionality; quintessential Frankland River riesling at an everyday price. Core mid palate fruit balanced by talcy, florals, texture and acidity lends to a long crisp finish.
