Pale lemon yellow in colour. Aromatic notes of stone fruit and white flowers. On the palate peach and citrus notes. Noticeable residual sugar (only 8.5% ABV). Many would pick this as Germanic - an excellent Spatlese style from the new world. Bob Campbell MW from NZ said “closer to the Alsace model than the Mosel model “ which is interesting. Also interesting is that this wine comes from Marlborough better known as a major centre for Kiwi Sauvignon Blanc. — 3 months ago
You would be forgiven for thinking this is an Alsace Riesling, not Kiwi. So did I. Pure nose, classic taste, nice weight, impressive on the mid palate. Very smooth and polished. Excellent. — 4 years ago

When it comes to the minuscule amount of Marlborough Riesling exported, Framingham remains a reference-point. Framingham is the first New Zealand winery to replicate every tier of the German Prädikats scale - from Kabinett to Trockenbeerenauslese. Their entry-level Riesling too merits consideration - a wine of purity and freshness that resonates with gorgeous flavors of apple skin, white petals, and frozen pears. — 6 years ago
