K&L Notes

When our customers think about the acclaimed varietal wines coming out of Australia and New Zealand, Riesling may not be the first one that comes to mind. Luckily for us, a surge in popularity and ideal growing conditions means these two countries are putting forth some truly phenomenal examples of the grape, ranging from bone dry to sticky sweet. Eden Valley and Victoria in Australia are dominating the Riesling game, aided by cool growing sites and higher mountain elevations. Marlborough, Central Otago and North Canterbury are all strong Riesling regions in New Zealand, with each bringing a unique microclimate and terroir to the varietal. It is the perfect time to familiarize yourself with Rieslings from these two trailblazing countries, as there are more styles and beautiful examples being produced now than ever. Notes from the winemaker: "Our organic grapes are hand selected at just the right moment to showcase the satisfying tension between natural sweetness and crisp acidity. This wonderful aperitif style has wild raspberry and orange citrus fruit flavours, and a lower alcohol content."

    While Framingham makes a few other varietals, Riesling is where they really shine. The 2017 vintage was a tough one in Marlborough, but winemaker Andrew Hedley took full advantage of the dumping rain and made the entire Prädikatswein of Riesling, ranging from trocken to trockenbeerenauslese. This Select is one my favorites, sitting in the middle at a spätlese level and the perfect pairing for Thai food.

    I just had the great luck to taste this with winemaker Andrew Hedley of Framingham. It is just simply outstanding! It has a lively beginning of minerals and a hint of chalk, followed quickly by a super solid punch of stone fruits and nectarine. The finish lingers, which is something that all of the wines from Framingham seem to do! I am also just amazed by the pricing for a wine of this quality....it's a total win-win all around!
