Framingham Classic Riesling 2013
Gorgeous, crystal clean Riesling designed for maximum refreshment!
Region: Marlborough, New Zealand
I remember visiting Framingham years ago. I’d proposed to my wife not long before and we were cycling blissfully through Marlborough when we stumbled across the Framingham winery. Back in those days I was blinded by the in your face, rasping Sauvignon Blanc from the area and we’d tasted plenty by the time we arrived at Framingham. What a delight. Riesling is their thing and they do it brilliantly. This is their ‘Classic’ Riesling and I’ll try not to describe it as classic, but it is a Riesling of the highest quality and an outstanding example of its kind. It’s described as off-dry, but don’t be fooled into thinking this will be sweet and cloying. It finishes extremely clean and refreshing and drags you back in for another glug. Brilliant stuff

If you like Riesling from Germany and Australia’s Clare Valley, give this a whirl.
At its best
Serve nicely chilled but I like it just as much as it warms up a bit because some of the fragrant, honeyed notes appear more clearly.
It’s a great aperitif and would be a fine partner to a Thai or Chinese take-away.
