Francis John Pinot Noir 2023



“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”.

Technical Notes

A classic Adelaide Hills Pinot showing lifted cherry and spice aromas with a subtle earthiness on the palate, framed by velvety tannins.

A match made in heaven with duck and game dishes or a porcini risotto.
