Description

"More whole bunches in the ferment, more time on the skins and less new oak are just a few changes made by winemaker, Hedley, to get less flavour sweetness in this year's pinot noir. An elegant, slightly leafy pinot noir with cherry, raspberry, floral, spice, and sappy dried herb flavours. It's a fleshy, complex wine with good weight. Good value" Bob Campbell, Master of Wine, Real Review, Mar 2019

Bright mid-garnet in the glass with aromatics reminiscent of smoked meat, with light florals, red cherry and plum. Flavours of red summer fruit compote and plum with savoury meat and graphite-like notes. Fine, well intergrated tannin structure.

Fruit comes from four sites in the Wairau Valley, with a mixture of clones being represented. Each parcel was hand picked and viified seperately; the amount of whole bunch included and time time on skins varied according to parcel. Overall the wine has about 10% whole bunch content, an average of 20 days on skins and was aged in French oak barriques for 10 months, of which around 20% were new. Bottled without fining or filtration.

Framingham Pinot Noir tends to a more 'feminine' style displaying grace and charm with strongly varietal flavour and some good structure to add interest.

With some of the oldest Riesling vines in Marlborough, Framingham planted their first Wairau Valley vines back in 1981. And they’ve been making wine we love to drink ever since. Now accredited as an environmentally sustainable vineyard and a winery with organic Estate viticulture practices, Framingham handcraft award-winning wines we love to drink. By combining small batches of fruit from different parts of the vineyard, Framinghambuild depth of flavour and texture. And by using experimental techniques and blending options, theytake risks. And the result? Rich, expressive wines we love to drink.
