Framingham F-Series Marlborough Pinot Noir (2020)

The graceful, supple 2020 vintage (4.5*) was grown at sites "generally in the southern part of the Wairau Valley." Matured for 14 months in French oak barriques (20 per cent new), it was bottled unfined and unfiltered. Full, bright ruby, it is mouthfilling and sweet-fruited, with generous, ripe cherry, plum and spice flavours, gently seasoned with nutty oak, very good complexity and a fragrant bouquet. A refined, harmonious red, it's well worth cellaring.
