Framingham Marlborough Classic Riesling
This product is currently sold out.
The Framingham label was launched in 1994 with one Riesling, and has since expanded to include Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir. Framingham produces wines from their 19.5 hectare estate vineyard (certified organic since 2014) and other selected sites. Their Riesling vines, planted in 1981, are among the oldest in Marlborough. Winemaker Dr Andrew Hedley joined Framingham in 2001, bringing with him an obsession with - and a reputation for – making great Riesling. Indeed, Jancis Robinson MW hails Andrew as “one of the most skilled practitioners of Riesling anywhere in the world”.
Framingham Marlborough Classic Riesling wine is an elegant pale gold in the glass, with hints of green. It has a fragrant, complex nose showing tangelo, honeysuckle, jasmine and quinine aromatics along with hints of apricot, beeswax, cream and some gentle nuances of wet stone. Wonderful with Asian food, chicken, salmon and tuna.
