Francis John Pinot Noir 2017
100 in stock
“We’ve affectionately named this wine after our late and colourful grandfather – Francis John Golding. In one of life’s ironies, he was raised as Peter Bennett, only to discover his true Golding identity upon enlisting in 1939. Although a beer lover at heart (bless him), our Pinot Noir shares many of his idiosyncrasies – its complex and irreverent with a warm and generous personality”.
Bolder cherry aromas sit well with the chariness and the smoked meat characters. The wine finishes well with beautiful chalky tannins. A cool and wet spring led to a much later picking date for this fruit. This wine is great with duck, and game meats. It also works really well with dishes that feature mushrooms. A favourite match of ours is Pinot Risotto with Mushroom, Chestnuts and Cavelo Nero.
