Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"Nobody’s Hero is Framingham's salute to the rebels, the radicals, the offbeat and the underground. Those with unorthodox methods and crazy ideas. Those that celebrate their individuality and are brave enough to express it.
An instant hit, our Pinot Gris kicks off with ripe and rich stone fruit notes, layers of baked apple, and juicy quince harmonies. The outro leaves you with a bold mouth-filling texture and a crowd-pleasing mineral finish."
95/100 NWWA 2019 (2018 Vintage)
"2018 was a great year for Pinot Gris. Not surprising when you team up the remarkable Framingham winemakers with great fruit and their Nobody’s Hero label, which is about celebrating individuality and celebration of the unsung hero, you are going to end up with something special. A wine that has concentrated peach and poached pear flavours with fruit weight in abundance, while being texturally silky and wonderfully dry."
4 Stars Michael Cooper (2018 Vintage)
"Priced right, the 2018 vintage from Framingham was tank-fermented and 35 per cent of the blend was aged in old barrels. Light lemon/green, it is fresh, weighty and dryish (5.6 grams/litre residual sugar), with peachy, slightly spicy flavours, showing good richness, and balanced acidity. A strongly varietal wine, it's already very open and expressive; drink now-2020."
92/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, August 2018 (2018 Vintage)
"Nobody’s Hero 2018 Pinot Gris is very similar to the 2017 in both style and quality. It’s a flavoursome and refreshing wine with a silken texture and appealing purity."
