Description

Vibrant aromatics, with apricot, mandarin orange and beeswax. Rich, chewy, slightly broad palate with stonefruits and orange pith as well as hints of cream and mineral oil. Satisfying, long, fruit driven finish.

Frmaingham's 'Estate' vineyard was badly affected by spring frosts in late 2015, leading to them losing approximately 60% of their Riesling fruit. This vintage was the first time Framingham's organic Riesling vineyard saw frost in 35 years and is where this wine takes its chilly name from.

To augment the very small batch of fruit available and make Framingham's Classic Riesling in 2016, they were able to source a little fruit from two old vineyards on Jackson’s Road in the Rapaura area of the Wairau Valley. 35% of this wine was made from grapes that had almost 100% early botrytis infection, the remainder coming from ripe, clean fruit. The clean fruit was fermented cool in stainless steel, while the fruit with some botrytis infection was allowed some overnight skin contact and was allowed to start fermentation spontaneously, also in stainless steel.

Food Pairing: A fantastic aperitif, or match with pork, other white meats, richer seafood or maybe even pâté.
