Framingham ‘F-Series’ Marlborough Riesling Beerenauslese 2017

Sweet Wine from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 12-Dec-2017
Bright, moderately deep, light golden-yellow colour, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is deeply concentrated with dense and solidly packed aromas of ripe citrus and tropical fruit with honey and nectar, along with marmalade, raisins and musk. This has real opulence, and unveils layers of complexing detail with aeration. Very sweet to taste and light-bodied, The palate has rich and solidly deep flavours of very ripe tropical fruit and citrus fruit, with nectar, honey and marmalade, integrated with raisin notes and a layering of musk. The palate is lush and unctuous with opulence and decadence. The honied and musky botrytis builds in intensity to fill the palate. This oozes succulence, the fruit underlined by fine, bright acidity. The unctuous flavours carry to a very long and sustained decadent finish of nectar. This is a beautifully rich and opulent, fully-sweet Riesling with deeply packed honey and musk flavours along with raisiny suggestions, the botrytis unfolding to fill the mouth. Selective hand-picked fruit from 3 tries, at 36.1 Brix, 95% from ‘Back’ block old vines and 5% from the ‘Middle’ block, with 100% botrytised fruit, but not fully raisined, fermented in stainless barrels to 9.0% alc. and 225 g/L RS. 650 bottles made.
