2018 Framingham Classic Riesling
Rule No.5: Respect your elders
With age comes maturity, wisdom, and (it would seem) good taste. Every year, our Classic Riesling comes together from our venerable selection of some of New Zealand’s oldest Riesling grapevines. We hand-select small parcels from each long-established vine to get a medley of different fruit characteristics, ranging from Meyer Lemon to Mandarin Orange. The result is as deliciously complex as you’d hope from a life this well lived.
Rule #1: Do what you love
Enjoy with Asian-style cuisine or seafood.

'Big wine with lots of lees work (6-8 months on lees) and a subtle botrytis influence. Honey, grapefruit and mineral flavours with nice sweet-and-sour tension. A moderately complex riesling in an appealing style.'
