Cheers to Framingham on this well-deserved rating!
Framingham’s Sauvignon Blanc (100%) is a classic Marlborough style with a signature dry, mineral finish. The wine has become famous worldwide for its expression of place, and for the intensity of flavors resulting from the combination of young riverbed soils and cool climate.
Framingham utilizes small batch winemaking for depth in flavor and texture. While around 93% of the Sauvignon Blanc 2015 blend was fermented in stainless steel tanks at cool temperatures, the remaining 7% were barrel fermented at warmer temperatures to enhance texture.
Marlborough’s Wairau Valley, at the top of New Zealand’s South Island, is one of the world’s premier cool climate viticultural regions, whose range of soil profiles, from stones to clay, and different mesoclimates and vineyard practices, provide complexity in the finished wine.
