Framingham Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is designed to be typically Marlborough in style, with a few twists. Texture and mouthfeel are as important to us as aromatic and flavour profile. Consequently, this style pairs well with food.
Wine Making: Each parcel of fruit is kept separate in the winery. Juices were predominately fermented in stainless steel using several different treatments, however 8% of the final wine was fermented in oak and acacia puncheons. A small component was fermented on skins. 50% of the blend was aged on ferment lees for 5 months prior to being blended and bottled.
Taste: Expressive aromatics, with flint, meyer lemon, and a subtle short bread note. A well-rounded palate with volume and mouthfeel. Flavours of passion and stone fruit, sweet herbs and a fine boned acid finish.
Food Match: All kinds of seafoods particularly shell fish , salads and light summer fare.
