Framingham ‘F-Series’ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2009

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 27-Jul-2012
Bright, even straw-yellow colour with green-gold hues, lighter on edge. This has good presence on bouquet, the aromas somewhat restrained, showing gooseberry fruit, and spicy herbs and secondary green bean elemens intermixed with some earthy, flinty lees work. The nose is dense and well-integrated. Dry and full-bodied, reserved, but complex flavours of nectarines, gooseberries, herbs and flinty notes are interwoven, forming a core with good depth and drive through the length of the palate. The flavours build to fill the palate, providing a full, rounded mouthfeel, and carry through to a moderately sustained finish. This is a complex, weighty Sauvignon Blanc with reserved flavours, but real presence. Match with herb-marinated seafood, pasta and poultry dishes over the next 2-3 years. Estate grown fruit, hand-picked and WBP, 65% barrel fermented with wild yeasts to 14.5% alc., the wine given 9 months lees contact. 17.5/20 Jul 2012 RRP $34.95
