Increased barrel fermentation component, now up to 10% with a small percentage on skins. A very textural sauvignon blanc while still retaining ripe stone fruit and nectarine, plus a hint of savoury lees character. The acidity is nicely integrated but still helps drive a lengthy finish. A classy and distinctive wine in a restrained style. Drink: 2016-2020 (Nov16)

95/100

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc has become famous worldwide for its expression of place and the purity, freshness and intensity of the flavours the combination of soil and climate provides. Framingham 2016 Sauvignon Blanc takes classic Marlborough flavours and marries them to a fine acid structure and rich texture with a mineral twist. The wine’s liveliness and punch are immediately appealing and will provide rewarding drinking over the next 18-24 months.
