With some of the oldest Riesling vines in Marlborough, Framingham planted their first Wairau Valley vines back in 1981. The winery’s website reads “we’ve been making wine we love to drink ever since.” Young Framingham boutique company, founded in 1997, is located in Renwick, New Zealand. The main objective of the wineries – production of high quality wines. All wines Framingham have bright, fruity, elegant taste is incomprehensible.
Sweetly fruited Pinot Noir is world famous in Marlborough, but we’ve made it our own by including a few whole bunches. The process is labour-intensive, but when done well it turns the wine to velvet. The stems build silkier tannins and lend a heavenly fragrance. Then the wine is aged in a smoky oak barrel, just long enough to add a few layers of savoury and spice complexity to those classic cranberry, cherry and plum fruit flavours.
The wine has a deep ruby color with bright and lively flavour with notes of cherries and fruit syrup on the background of shades of oak and light haze. Juicy fruit tones, shades of ripe raspberry and cherry dominate the aroma of the wine. It is best served with not appetizers, game beef dishes, lamb and veal as well as fish sauce.
