Framingham Sauvignon Blanc judged the best in Sydney

2012 Framingham Sauvignon Blanc awarded Trophy for Best Sauvignon Blanc at the prestigious 2013 Sydney International Wine Competition.
“What Sauvignon Blanc is all about. A beautiful wine.” says Steve Flamsteed wine judge.
The 2012 success follows another Trophy for the 2011 vintage and Gold for the 2010.

On Saturday 23 February the 2012 Framingham Sauvignon Blanc was recognised as the Best Sauvignon Blanc at the Sydney International Wine Competition.

The prestigious Sydney International Wine Competition is an independent, self funded, food oriented wine show and is recognised as one of the few international competitions that match and judge wine with food.

Sydney International Wine Awards judge Oliver Masters described the wine as “Intense boxwood passionfruit nose. A tight pure and elegant palate. Full but fresh. It was a nice gentle match with the salmon.”

Whereas wine judge Steve Flamsteed wrote “Flinty wet rock and lemon zest. A good solid palate with everything in balance. A very refreshing style. Finishes crisp and puckering and makes you want a second glass. This is what Sauvignon Blanc is all about. A beautiful wine.”

“We love white aromatics styled to accompany food and our Framingham range has grown with a strong tradition of winemaking for balance, texture and complexity” says Tom Trolove General Manager.

The Framingham Sauvignon Blanc has been showing some great form of late with the 2010 Framingham Sauvignon Blanc picking up Gold at the Air New Zealand Wine Awards, the 2011 vintage taking out the Trophy in New York’s Ultimate Wine Challenge and now the 2012 has been awarded the best Sauvignon Blanc Trophy at the Sydney International Wine Competition.

That is all.
