2018 Fromm Riesling Beerenauslese, Marlborough 375ml
Rich, ripe fruit with a lifting mineral backbone. Sweet and lush on the palate with cleansing acidity that ensures the wine is not sticky or cloying.
A sweet wine with precision. This Riesling is a nod to our past, representing our 1st Beerenauslese since 2004. The 2018 vintage gifted us this style of wine, with a wonderful growing season followed by rain during vintage. Our late harvested fruit was shrivelled, but clean with little botrytis, intense ripe flavours and excellent acid structure.
This wine opens with rich, expressive fruit characters (apricots, mango pit and citrus) proceeded with a good licking of minerality. The palate is sweet and unctuous without being, at all, cloying or heavy. A cleansing acidity drives the palate and augments the wine’s vibrancy.
