Framingham Classic Riesling
Framingham Classic Riesling is a generous, mouth-filling wine with ripe orange citrus flavours and juicy acidity.
Fruit comes from all three sections on the Estate. Each parcel was hand –picked and bunch –pressed. Juices were predominately fermented in stainless steel, with some small lots being aged in barrel. Components were aged on full ferment lees for around eight months. Aromatics are reminiscent of mandarin and cream, with stonefruit and hints of smoke and rock. Vibrant, intense, focused palate with orange, nectarine and cream flavours and a good line of juicy acidity.
This wine goes very well with pork dishes, other white meat and seafood.
The alluvial soils of the Wairau Valley Estate were formed by the sedimentation of the Wairau River. In the warm centre of the valley – where there’s low rainfall and relatively low frost risk – we can harvest controlled yields at desired ripeness.
Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer, Viognier, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are all grown on the Estate. And they have carefully selected 12 contract vineyards in the same valley, which gives them plenty of options.
“We want to make quality wines for years to come. But not at the expense of the land. So we take a low-impact approach to vineyard management.
We do a lot of the work by hand, and we focus on the environment by avoiding systemic chemicals and planting flowers to encourage biodiversity.
Accredited as a sustainable vineyard and winery under the Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand program, our Estate vineyard is also Certified Organic through BioGro NZ Ltd – further reflecting our efforts to bring things back into balance.” – Frammingham Wines
