Framingham is a boutique winery, offering a range of expressive, hand-crafted and individual Marlborough wines made in limited quantities. They employ some of Marlborough’s oldest and best vineyards.
The Pinot Gris is made in the style of Alsace from hand picked, whole bunch pressed grapes. This version has spicy aromatics and shows apple strudel like flavours of apples, pears, raisins, pastry and cream. Some residual sugar is retained at the end of fermentation to provide alcohol balance. The resultant wine is opulent with a rich, slightly oily texture, good weight and mouthfeel, and long finish.
“Lovely fresh, grapey, herby, aromatic nose. The palate is broad and soft textured with nice freshness and purity, a hint of lychee and some grapey notes.” – 89/100 – www.wineanorak.com
REVIEWS & AWARDS
Nose; Spiced white fruits, crisp yellow apple, ripe, juicy and luscious suggestions with hints of white pepper. Palette: Off-dry impressions at first with luscious – white fleshed fruits envelope the palate then white pepper and warm textures take over with medium to medium+ acidity adding contrast and balance. The acidity pushes the finish of this wine into a dry ending yet the flavours last for quite a while and coupled with a lightly oily texture leaves a lasting impression of quality – 4 Stars.
