Framingham Marlborough Pinot Noir 2014

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 25-Oct-2015
25% clone 5, with the remainder 10/5, 115, 667 and 777 from 8 Wairau Valley sites, including the Southern Valleys, fermented partially with indigenous yeasts and with a small portion of whole bunches to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 20% new French oak barriques. Ruby-red colour with some depth, lighter on the rim. This has a softly fresh and up-front nose of bright and sweetly aromatic dark raspberry fruit, lifted by red florals, unveiling subtle and detailed layers of spices and dark herbs, nutty oak and raspberry liqueur. Medium-bodied, the palate is gently mouthfilling with dark raspberry fruit and dark red floral notes, along with subtle herbal interest. This is soft-textured with fine-grained tannins and balanced, integrated acidity, the palate flowing smoothly along a finely concentrated line. The wine leads to a soft and light finish of raspberry fruit. This is a soft, full, up-front raspberry-fruited Pinot Noir with fine textures. Serve with pasta and pork over the next 4+ years. 17.5-/20 Oct 2015 RRP $30.00
