Framingham Marlborough Pinot Gris 2008

Framingham produce great Riesling in both dry through to sweet botrytised expressions; their Chardonnays and Pinots Noir (and Riesling) feature in my wine classes at AUT on a regular basis.

Framingham Pinot Gris 2008.
N: Spiced white fruits, crisp yellow apple, ripe, juicy and luscious suggestions with hints of white pepper. P: Off-dry impressions at first with luscious  - white fleshed fruits envelope the palate then white pepper and warm textures take over with medium to medium+ acidity adding contrast and balance. The acidity pushes the finish of this wine into a dry ending yet the flavors last for quite a while and coupled with a lightly oily texture leaves a lasting impression of quality - 4 Stars.
