Framingham ‘F-Series’ Marlborough Viognier 2011

Viognier from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 27-Jul-2012
Bright, even straw-yellow colour with slight green-gold hues, pale on rim. The bouquet is very fine, fresh and elegant with pure apricot and citrus zest aromas infused with herbs and flinty nuances, the nose possessing excellent depth and intensity. Dry to taste, very fine, intense and pure flavours of citrus zest, apricots and tropical fruits are enlivened by racy, slippery acidity. This has an unctuous oiliness along with a little alcoholic heat and power, all contributing to an excellent core. Complexing notes of flinty lees emerge in the glass and are carried through to a long, delicately nuanced finish. This is an elegant Viognier with some raciness and unctuousness and building power. Serve with Asian seafood and poultry dishes over the next 3-4 years. Estate grown fruit, hand-picked and WBP, indigenous yeast fermented to 14.5% alc. and 6 g/L rs, with 30% in barrel, the wine aged on lees approx. 9 months. 18.0-/20 Jul 2012 RRP $34.95
