2013 Francis John Pinot Noir
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.
A true ‘Burgundian’ style Pinot that has texture and body, with a balance of rich fruit and savoury characters.
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.
“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”.
