Framingham, 'Pinot Noir', 2017, Marlborough, New Zealand


This is a really good Kiwi Pinot. Savoury, yet fruity, a touch of cherry, spice, and floral notes. Rounded, soft, and flinty. Very balanced and would go effortlessly with Turkey or Roast Duck. A really lovely bottle.

The Framingham label was launched in 1994 with one Riesling, and has since expanded to include Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir. Framingham produces wines from their 19.5 hectare estate vineyard (certified organic since 2014) and other selected sites. Their Riesling vines, planted in 1981, are among the oldest in Marlborough.
