Framingham Pinot Noir 2015

Marlborough, South Island, New ZealandSoftly sweet spices weave attractively throughout this Wairau Valley pinot noir, chosen from seven different sites. A mix of clones (5, 10/5, 115, 667, 777 and Abel), the fruit was was primarily destemmed into stainless steel, with a minor component of whole bunch. After fermentation, the lots spent ten months maturating in a French barriques (20 percent new) before blending and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Pretty and feminine, with graceful raspberry, perfumed cherry and a haze of light smoke wrap around a youthful, juicy and red fruited core. This likeable pinot is a joy to drink.Tasted: 19 March 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
