Description

2015/2016 was a tough vintage for Framingham. For the first time in 35 years their organic Riesling vineyard got frost, causing the loss of an estimated 60% of their fruit. What does a Riesling fiend like Dr Andrew Hedley do? He asks his mates to help, and they gladly chip in. Adding to the small parcel of 2016 Classic, were fruit from two old vineyards on Jackson's Road in the Rapaura region of Wairau Valley, and voila the Jack Frost was made (they hope there won't ever be need for a second vintage of it!). There is a big component of botrytis fruit in the wine, and it really comes across, but the acidity is great, cleansing the palate well. If this was from Europe, you'd easily be paying double (or triple) the price so stock up on this bargain while it is available, because it's sure to run out the door.
Smells
A nose heavy with botyrtis notes, orange peel, mandarin, apricots and a hint of beeswax.
Tastes
Awesome Riesling, from a true Riesling fiend. Intense citrus peel flavours, orange, grapefruit and mandarain. Awesome texture and lime juice like acidity cleanse the palate. The finish is long and minerally. Drink now (or cellar until 2023) with Vietnamese caramelised pork spare ribs.
