Not only boasting silky tannins and a heavenly fragrance, this Pinot Noir takes a turn in a smoky oak barrel adding layers of savoury and spice to those classic cranberry, cherry and plum fruit flavours.

The key to Framingham's individuality is its combining of small batches of wine from different parts of the vineyard to build depth of flavour and texture. They only source fruit from the Wairau Valley. Their Riesling vines are among the oldest in Marlborough, planted in 1981 with initial releases produced using other wineries’ facilities. The first wine under the Framingham label was a 1994 Riesling. Their winery and tasting room were built in 1997, with a red wine handling facility and barrel hall added in 2002. The Framingham range has grown with a strong tradition of balance, texture and complexity while the F-Series wines allow them to push boundaries with wild fermentation, new varieties and techniques. The best of what they learn from F-Series is incorporated into the Framingham range – staying true to their original style while allowing innovation. Visit the Framingham Website
