Framingham F-Series Old Vine Marlborough Riesling (2020)

Hand-picked from 39 year-old vines, estate-grown in the Wairau Valley, the 2020 vintage (5*) is a "dryish" wine, fermented in a mix of stainless steel tanks (80 per cent) and seasoned acacia puncheons (20 per cent). Matured on its yeast lees for nine months, it is a a powerful, mouthfilling, fleshy wine, with concentrated, peachy, citrusy flavours, showing excellent complexity and harmony, and a basically dry finish. Already very approachable, it should be at its best 2023+.
