In any conversation of NZ's finest producers. Framingham's exquisite German-style Riesling is simply sensational. A must try wine.
Framingham is donating 10c from every bottle sold in New Zealand to New Zealand MusicHelps, a charity that uses the power of music to change the lives of people experiencing hardship and illness. Initiatives include financial assistance, healthcare programs and music-based community projects.
The winery writes "Aromatics are reminiscent of mandarin pith,gin and tonic, and old school lemonade. Vibrant, intense, focused palate with orange, Meyer lemon, and stone fruit flavours held together by good line of juicy acidity and elegant texture."
Cameron Douglas MS writes "Fresh, ripe and enticing bouquet of green apple and white peach, sweet lemon, and cold wet stone mineral. An off-dry wine bursting with flavours fresh juicy tree and citrus fruits, some cold peach and lemon tea and rosehip. No mistaking refreshing acid line flooding the palate with flavours that reflect the bouquet. A delicious wine ready as an aperitif or with gently spicy first courses that are seafood or salad based. "
NZ Wine Rater writes "Fresh, lifted, exotic bouquet with an array of characters from subtle white lilies and wet stones through to riper notes of golden delicious apples, mandarin and tropical fruits. Clean, pure, tasty fruit flavours come through on the palate with a taut, salivating acid structure and lingering finish. Generous and pleasing wine. "
