Juicy, tangy, Sauvignon from the best plots of the Kuranui Vineyard in the upper reaches of the Awatere Valley, Marlborough. Here hot days and cool nights help the vines to produce grapes that are fully ripened but that retain some wonderful acidity. This is a serious cut above bulk New Zealand Sauvignon but comes at a great price.
Citrus floral notes, complex aromas of sweet jasmine, lemon lime and an underlying nuttiness. The wine is voluptuous and generous, with a zing of lemon sherbet. Balanced and elegant, the palate is softened by the residual sugar which delicately offsets the acidity, giving length and structure. This is a very approachable food-friendly Riesling which can be enjoyed now or over the next five years.
An intense hit of cherry and dark plum is balanced with alluring floral and earthy nuances. Chocolate, coffee and oak combine beautifully with the plush juiciness of this wine to deliver a round and generous palate and silky textural finish. Drink now, or cellar for up to 10 years.
Classic strong citrus characters with lemon and grapefruit prominent, complimented by elderflowers, with smoky and flinty undertones. A juicy and vibrant palate of pure citrus flavours leaving a lengthy finish with refreshing, balanced acidity. Food match: Fresh, simple seafood dishes especially oysters. Also compliments goat’s cheese well.
The grapes were grown on the deep gravels of the Waipara Valley, hand selected chilled overnight before being whole bunch pressed. Waipara’s dry mid-autumn during 2010 meant botrytis did not develop in the Riesling vineyards. As a result we have lime and lemon zest on the nose with a pure acid to finish.
With more texture and complexity than the pure styles of Riesling in the Framingham range, the Old Vine Riesling is a deliciously balanced old-world style. Hand-harvested, bunch pressed with no juice clarification, and fermented with uninoculated yeasts, before leaving it on lees for 11 months ahead of bottling. The result is a harmonious mix of mandarin and ripe apple. Harmless crystals may form in the bottle.
