Framingham Marlborough Pinot Noir 2010

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 23-Jan-2012
Moderately deep ruby-red colour with some purple hues. The bouquet is fresh and bright with aromas of dark raspberry fruit with some fresh herbs and very subtle oak spice, all showing good depth. Medium-bodied, up-front juicy, dark plum and raspberry flavours supported by sensitive oak notes and hints of liquorice are supported by supple tannins forming a positive framework and fine textured mouthfeel. Soft acidity enhances the fruit sweetness, which is attractively inviting. Made from a variety of clones used from 6 Wairau Valley sites, destemmed and given a cold soak, then fermented to 13.5% alc, temperatures reaching 30°C, the wine aged 10 months in 23% new French barriques. This is a fruit-driven, juicy and supple Pinot Noir to match with pasta, poultry and pork over the next 3-4+ years. 17.5-/20 Jan 2012 RRP $34.95
