Framingham Marlborough Noble Riesling 2015

Sweet Wine from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 27-Oct-2015
Brilliant, full, light golden-yellow colour, paler on edge. The nose is fine in concentration with rich, ripe and opulent aromas of citrus and tropical fruits, honey and fully entwined aromas of botrytis musk, talc and marmalade. The botrytis unfolds in waves and the complexity is enhanced by exotic floral elements. Very sweet, rich and opulent, this has a dense, softly packed and rounded core. The flavours are stylishly restrained in expression showing integrated ripe citrus and tropical fruits, marmalade, honey and lifted florals. This is smooth-flowing with a gentle unctuousness, the acidity soft and the mouthfeel balanced and extremely harmonious. The wine carries effortlessly to a long and sustained finish of exotic florals and honey. This is a very fine and smooth, harmoniously integrated sweet Riesling with waves of opulent botrytis and an unctuous mouthfeel. Match with panna cotta, crème caramel, baked desserts and blue cheese over the next 5-6 years. Hand-picked fruit , blended from 6 Auslese picks, bunches selected with 100% botrytis affected berries, mostly in early stages of dehydration (net botrytis influence approx. 80%), with net 34.0° Brix. Fermented 67% in stainless and 33% in oak barrels to 9.5% alc. and 188 g/L RS. Beerenauslese style. 4,050 bottles made. (375 ml) 19.0/20 Oct 2015 RRP $40.00
