What’s in the glass tonight March 20th

Framingham Classic Riesling 2009

From the Cellar: Framingham Classic Riesling Marlborough 2009 – $$$

A single-vineyard wine from 28-year old vines. Bright green gold. 12%.

Lifted aromatic bouquet. I see age volatiles, TCN, and also pure and fruity qualities. Honeysuckle and my home-made lemon cordial.

A light-bodied off-dry wine, with ripe golden fruit in the mouth. I can taste honey, lemon-curd, Golden Delicious apples, ginger and mandarins. Good acidity on the finish with a zing on the tongue. Very long.

Went very well with tonight’s chicken curry – the sweetness lifted above the curry heat.
