2014 Fromm Winery Riesling Spätlese Marlborough (Medium)
Absolutely delicious wine Riesling with wonderful purity and an exquisite sweet/sour tension. Citrus/floral and chalky mineral flavours. This is one of the country’s lowest alcohol wines (7%) but it has been made with a total focus on quality, the alcohol is incidental.
As you would expect, this consistently awesome label once again delivers huge amount of pleasure with this latest offering. Fabulous aromas of lemon curd, apple blossom, nectarine and touch of flint on the nose. The palate is equally appealing, and exhibits linear mouthfeel, fine texture and elegant sweetness, perfectly balanced by racy acidity. The wine shows wonderful balance and tension, finishing beautifully long and refreshing. At its best: now to 2024.

The 2014 Spatlese Riesling has a subtle lemon / lime and orange blossom laced nose with coriander seed and jasmine hints. Light-bodied and medium-sweet in the mouth, it explodes with tightly-wound tension and primary flavors with a gorgeous minerality coming through on the long finish. (LPB)
Mango and melon flavors are fleshy and ripe, with notes of herb and honey on the juicy finish. (Web-2016) (MW)
This is a Riesling that really hits all the flavor receptors on the palate; sweet, sour, fruity, saline and mineral. A wonderfully exotic and perfectly ripe wine that is packed with flavor but remains focused, zesty and linear. Low alcohol (7%) with a lovely dash of residual sugar that is perfectly harmonized with the wines racy acidity. This is flat-out delicious! (Ryan Woodhouse - K&L NZ Wine Buyer)
