Framingham F-Series Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough 2013 $39
This is Framingham’s top savvy, a very complex, barrel fermented style showing attractive oak and sauvignon fruit plus wild, balsamic notes and some honey development. Full flavour, tight structure and long dry finish. Serious stuff. (14 per cent alcohol). Aging: Now to four years. Score: 93 – Huon’s Wine 360
Food: Aged goat cheese.
Stockists: The Vine Providore, Sydney; Prince Wine Store, Melbourne.
