Francis John Pinot Noir 2015

Portrait Series



“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 – it’s complex and irreverent with a warm and generous personality”.

An elegant style of Pinot Noir with lifted aromas of summer berries underpinned by secondary fruit characters of dark cherries. The structured palate is bright and vibrant showing good integration of fine, drying tannins and savoury gamey tones.
