Anthony Gismondi on Wine
Framingham Sauvignon Blanc

Framingham Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Marlborough, South Island, New ZealandFramingham has always eschewed the power and aggressive notes of most Marlborough sauvignon, to its credit. The styling reflects a few key winemaking techniques including picking fully ripe Wairau Valley fruit, a small amount of fermentation on the skins, and small amounts of ageing in oak and acacia barrels for an even smaller amount of time. Each contributes to a layer of complexing that shouts 'I'm more than just passionfruit and acidity'. I love the richer, softer version of Kiwi sauvignon that tastes more balanced on the palate. Ready to drink and fairly priced.Tasted: 18 May 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: ON 21.95 LCBO Producer: FraminghamDistributors: Charton-Hobbs
