100% Riesling from Framinham's estate vineyards in Marlborough, one of the world’s premier cool-climate viticultural regions.
Juices from hand-picked parcels were extracted at low pressures over 4 hours, and clarified by cold settling for 2 to 3 days before racking. Fermentation was conducted in stainless steel tanks with varying degrees of temperature control, and selected batches were stopped with some residual sugar remaining. The wines were left on gross lees for 2-3 months with a further 7 months on light lees. A small component was aged in neutral wood vessels.
Elegant pale gold in the glass with hints of green. It has a fragrant, complex nose showing tangelo, honeysuckle, jasmine and quinine aromatics along with hints of apricot, beeswax, cream and some gentle nuances of wet stone.
