CHAMPION PINOT NOIR & GOLD MEDAL | New World Wine Awards
GOLD MEDAL | NZ International Wine Show

As part of a label re-vamp, Framingham Wines in Marlborough introduced the ‘Nobody’s Hero’ range to reflect the company’s involvement with music, as expressed by the annual Framingham Harvest Concert. The label was introduced at the end of last year as a "salute to the rebels, the radical, the offbeat and the underground”, whose music and culture features in the concert.
This is an immediately friendly Pinot Noir made to be enjoyed with or without food. Medium-bodied but firmly packed, it is youthfully bright and fresh-fruited with dark-red cherry and raspberry fruit entwined with dark herb notes.
Framingham is donating 10c from every bottle sold in New Zealand to New Zealand MusicHelps, a charity that uses the power of music to change the lives of people experiencing hardship and illness. Initiatives include financial assistance, healthcare programs and music-based community projects.
Cuisine wine writes "Earthy red fruits and spice combine with a whole-bunch, chalky tannin character that goes straight through the palate. Juiciness, elegance, vibrance and a light tread when it comes to oak. A wine made for enjoying now but will cellar quite nicely too."
The winery writes "Matured in French oak barriques and seduced by the steady thrum of the bassline, our Pinot Noir delivers a lush, rounded palate with vibrant red fruit vibes, and a lick of gentle oak and dark chocolate."
