Framingham’s F Series Old Vine Riesling is sourced from 35-year-old organically grown vines on Framingham’s estate in Marlborough. It was aged on its lees for 9 months. Of the total volume, approximately 12% was fermented in old oak. A deliciously balanced old-world style, the nose has concentrated lime fruit with hints of honeysuckle and stony minerality. Medium to full bodied, the palate is intense with rich, balanced flavours of mandarin and ripe apple. Layered and complex, citrus fruits and wet slate continue throughout. Crisp, lively acidity carries through the dry, lingering finish.

    Description

    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.

    The 2020 Riesling F-Series Old Vine is all about richness and texture. A small portion of the wine undergoes skin contact, it is all wild-fermented, and around 20% is fermented in acacia puncheons before taking a decent rest (9 months) on its lees. The result is like a millefeuille with layers of flavor and texture, a rich midpalate and a lightly grippy sensation on the finish, contributing to the length and sense of purpose. In terms of aromatics, you can expect lime, orange, baklava and jasmine tea. The lengthy finish is balanced and muscular.
