Description

There is always an extra layer of interest to Framingham wines, with ex Newcastle-on-Tyne winemaker Andrew Hedley's European sensibilities coming through loud and clear. Framingham say 'we make wine by our own rules' and that is certainly paying off for them when you taste this Chardonnay. Rule No.6 - Have it both ways - a nod to the distinct creamy, buttery styles vs the fruity elegant styles of Chardonnay. One half of the fruit underwent full-barrel fermentation adding the creamy, nutty complexities and the other is aged in stainless steel tanks on lees for 8-months allowing the purity of fruit to shine. Combine both these parcels at the end and you have the best of both worlds.

Smells

Peaches and grapefruit, with almond meal and vanilla.

Tastes

Fleshy and full of delicious biscuit and grilled nut flavours, the stonefruit and grapefruit profiles flood the long, complex finish. Beautiful texture, great concentration and all in harmony, This is an amazing amount of wine for the money, yet again emphasising the hard-earned reputation of this outstanding producer.

We taste, rate & guarantee every wine we sell.
