Framingham’s estate vineyard was established at Conders Bend in Marlborough’s Wairau valley in 1980, with approximately 17 acres of Riesling vines planted on resistant rootstock on stony, old riverbed soils. Riesling was augmented with other varietals in later years. Today, Framingham is taking fruit from these 36 year old vines and releasing a diverse range of Riesling wines, unashamedly inspired by Germanic styles, which rely on the vibrant natural acidity Marlborough’s temperate climate provides. Wines under the Framingham label represent fruit purity, whereas the F-Series label provides a home for more complex, textural examples, as well as the extremely small run vintage specific wines that we may not be able to make every year.
