Groundswell Of Riesling

“The emergence of exceptionally fine New Zealand wines proves there is a groundswell of real talent and ambition in these islands,” Jancis Robinson writes in the Financial Times. “Two weeks ago, I came across the finest wine I have ever tasted from Marlborough. It wasn’t a Sauvignon Blanc, even though this region in the north of the South Island is credited with being home to the modern idiom of this variety. The wine in question was Framingham, F Series Riesling Auslese 2011 Marlborough. The purest and most compelling of the six wines shown in the Auslesen bracket of Feirt, the two-day Riesling love-in organised in Sydney every two or three years by Western Australian Riesling specialist Frankland Estate, was this New Zealand wine.”
