K&L Notes

Made from select fruit picked at advanced ripeness but free from botrytis to isolate the clean, juicy, bright citrus flavors. A spatlese style wine balancing beautiful ripe, sweet fruit with searing acidity and delicate mineral underpinnings. This wine is just ultimately drinkable -- low alcohol, refreshing, mouthwatering deliciousness. (Ryan Woodhouse, K&L NZ wine buyer)

    A truly delicious Riesling that possesses a near perfect blend of juicy sweetness and crisp acidity. It is fresh and zesty and incredibly easy to drink thanks to the later harvest pick that adds character, depth, and a higher residual sugar. Andrew Hedley is the master of Riesling in New Zealand, making wines ranging from bone dry to dessert, and this sweet spot right in the middle is my absolute favorite. This is one I'd be happy to have any night of the week all year round.

    Oh, how I love a good off-dry Riesling! Apricot, citrus zest, and Bartlett pear, sweet but not cloying, with fabulously balanced acidity- and 8.5% alcohol. Helloooooo, summer!

    Framingham's "Select" Riesling is possibly the best wine in their production. I love this wine--it's a perfect balance and expression of Riesling that is neither too austerely acidic nor too cloyingly sweet. It is made in a "Spatlese" style, with slightly later harvest, and some residual sugars, yet it is still very crisp and fresh, with no botrytis influence. Rather, you have the pure fruit flavors of apricot, candied tangerine peel, and ripe honeydew in the forefront, with clean, stony mineral notes and fresh grapefruit acidity in the backdrop. Perfectly composed, and well-structured for the long-haul in terms of aging.
