What’s in the glass tonight January 23rd – Riesling

Framingham F-Series riesling 2010

From the Cellar: Framingham F-Series Old Vine Riesling Marlborough 2010 – $$$

Great Germanic-style label. Bought from the Winery. 12.5% alc

Green gold colour. Just gorgeous.

Luscious fruit ‘n phenolics, tropical fruit aromas, lychees, fresh crusty bread, and that fantastic Riesling ‘tang’. This has it all going on. On a hot arvo it can’t be beat!

In the mouth: an off-dry style of Riesling. Delicious fruit flavours: Braeburrn apples meet pineapple lemon ice blocks. A hit of citrus, refreshing and mouthwatering.

This is a simple Riesling, but still expressive. It shows off what we look for in wine – balance and structure – which in this case is the right sweetness balanced by the right acidity.

Abso lovely.
