Framingham ‘F-Series’ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 25-Oct-2015
Fruit from a 0.4 ha block of estate vines, around 8 y.o., indigenous yeast fermented, 65% in seasoned oak and the remainder in stainless-steel barrels to 13.0% alc. and 2.4 g/L RS, the wine aged 10 months on lees without MLF. Brilliant, light straw-yellow colour with pale green-gold hues. This has an elegantly concentrate and intense bouquet with complex aromas of greengages, nectarines and green stonefruits entwined with spicy herbs and subtle, savoury, nutty and smoky barrel-ferment elements. The aromatics grow in density and firmness with aeration. Medium-bodied, this has a tight core of savoury and spicy green stonefruits melded with herb and nutty, smoky layers. This has concentration and drive, and the wine flows along a very fine-textured line with integrated acidity. The palate has richness and a near creaminess to the mouthfeel and carries to a finish that blooms in complexing spice and oak detail. This is a complex, soft and finely concentrated, oak-influenced Sauvignon Blanc. Serve with Mediterranean cuisine and herb-marinated poultry and pork over the next 3 years. 1,733 bottles made. 18.0/20 Oct 2015 RRP $35.00
