Framingham Sauvignon Blanc 2013
A full and complex spectrum of flavours, from herbal notes through to ripe tropical fruit salad. Tangy grapefruit, bitter lemon, blackcurrant and hints of tomato leaf and dried thyme. Mouthfeel is rounded with good weight, and is enriched by the barrel ferment components, which add creaminess too. Acidity is fresh and juicy but by no means tart, and helps to promote a signature dry, stony mineral finish.
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
Recognized for its distinctively herbaceous and aromatic, Sauvignon blanc, New Zealand is perfectly suited to the grape with its maritime climate, plenty of rainfall and abundant sunshine. Producers have almost unilaterally embraced cutting-edge winery technology, resulting in clean, high-quality wines at every price point from wallet-friendly to premium. Sauvignon blanc is at its best in Marlborough but thrives throughout as the country. It is New Zealand’s most planted and successful variety, also accounting for an overwhelming majority of its exports.
