Framingham ‘F-Series' Marlborough Riesling Beerenauslese 2012 ««««« Hand-harvested fruit, picked 12 June at 174 Oechsle, from front and back of winery old vines with 100% botrytis affected berries, fermented in a 100 L stainless barrel to 7.0% alc. and 275 g/L rs. Meets Trockenbeerenauslese criteria. Bright, full and even light golden yellow colour. The bouquet is very full and packed with layers of aromas, unfolding to reveal ripe citrus fruits, exotic tropical fruits, honey, caramel and marmalade, beautifully lifted and fresh, and simultaneously decadent. Very sweet and nectar-like, this is extremely concentrated and intense with masses of ripe citrus and apricotty fruit interwoven with flavours of honey, marmalade, caramel, yet remarkably expressed with great pose and precision, Acid piquancy underlines the luscious sweetness and the palate flows seamlessly, with beautiful tension and energy, opening layers of detail and nuance right through to a very long and sustained finish. This is a decadent and hedonistic dessert wine with superb liveliness. Match with rich puddings and desserts or serve as a liqueur over the next 8-10 years. 210 bottles made. (375 ml) 19.5/20 Nov 2012 RRP $60.00
