2002 Framingham Pinot Noir - Gold

25 September 2005

2002 Framingham Pinot Noir - Gold

New Zealand's Framingham Winery has won a Gold Medal at one of the world's most prestigious wine shows.

Framingham 2002 Pinot Noir has been awarded Gold at the 2004 International Wine Challenge in London.

"Judges commented on the wine's toasty smoky characteristics and added that it had vibrant fruit and vanilla oak for layers of complexity and good depth, "Framingham's Chief Executive Officer, Ken Rogers, said.

The International Wine Challenge is one of the world's largest and most prestigious wine competitions with more than 10,000 wines entered. A large part of the International Wine Challenge's reputation is due to the quality and experience of its extensive band of judges.

This year more than 400 members of the wine trade took part, including more than 40 Masters of Wine. Winemakers and critics from around the world also flew in to assist.

"This award reinforces the reputation of New Zealand and in particular Marlborough as a region with great potential."

Mr Rogers also said "the win would be an enormous boost for Framingham in domestic and international markets."

Framingham built its reputation as a producer of award winning white aromatic wines including Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer. In 1999 it added Pinot Noir to its portfolio and in 2002 the company opened a purpose built Pinot Noir cellar facility signalling its intention to focus on the variety.

The Gold Medal winning 2002 Framingham Pinot Noir, the first vintage to be made in this new facility, is a reflection of the Framingham team's dedication to quality at every step of the winemaking process.
