Fromm Pinot Noir: The best in the region?

Fromm Pinot Noir: The best in the region?

Across the Nelson and Marlborough region there are number of wineries that are renowned for producing outstanding Pinot Noir wines, however, in a recent report by Nick Stock it was our"2015 Fromm Pinot Noir Clayvin Vineyard" that grabbed the top spot for Fromm Winery. 

Nick Stock awarded the “2015 Fromm Clayvin Vineyard Pinot Noir” 97 points, the highest across the board, Nick had the following words to say:

“The 2015 Fromm Clayvin Vineyard Pinot Noir is incredible, it’s a super wine that's really flowing, commanding and marries power with elegance. Vineyard greatness in the glass. This is a New Zealand benchmark

Fromm Winery also made a second appearance in the top 4, with our flagship wine, “2015 Fromm Pinot Noir Cuvee “H”, a new release which was unveiled earlier this year at Pinot 2017. Awarded 96 points, Nick described the Pinot Noir as “Masterful” with a “Wealth of oak spices and gentle meaty notes”.

Nick also reviewed the remaining Pinot Noir's from our collection and as always, it was great to see our wines receiving such credible recognition.

Cuvee "H" flies the flag for Fromm Pinot Noir

Cuvee "H" flies the flag for Fromm Pinot Noir

The talent, knowledge and dedication of Hätsch Kalberer, Fromm Winery's founding Winemaker, has been recognized, as our New Flagship Pinot Noir is named after him. 

The Story.. 

Hätsch Kalberer, has been Fromm Winery's Winemaker since the beginning when Fromm began in 1992. Over these 25 years he has become one of New Zealand's most highly regarded winemakers, continuing to make Fromm Winery's outstanding Pinot Noir's that are enjoyed by so many of you across the globe. It therefore, only seemed right that when developments and planning for our "new" Pinot Noir began last year, that we would give Hätsch the recognition that he deserved, and name the wine after him. In December 2016 we bottled Fromm Pinot Noir Cuvée "H" 2015 , just 2,500 bottles in total, a limited number that we want to see being bought and drunk more often and by more of you. 

The wine...

"Fromm Pinot Noir Cuvée "H" 2015" is a thoughtful composite of our five individual single vineyard wines and expresses a winery signature. It is the best Pinot we feel we can make and represents what we appreciate most in fine Pinot Noir. We do not strive to be the biggest and loudest on the block, but instead look for a complete and refined wine. Cuvée “H” is very much built with longevity in mind, however this does not preclude early drinking appeal. 

The Reviews.. 

Officially released just last month at Pinot 2017, Cuvée "H" has already received a number of fantastic reviews... 

97 points , 5 stars
"A Taut, powerful wine with impressive fruit purity. Layered flavors are hard to define, perhaps cherry, violet, plum and spicy oak with other savory nuances in the background.”  Bob Campbell, 2017

96 Points, 5 Stars
"It is awesome to see a powerful pinot expressed so elegantly with poise and structure." Sam Kim (Wine Orbit)

5 Stars    
"This is a stylish Pinot Noir with a full range of red and black fruits, along with herb, liquorice and spice detail on a fine-grained, supple palate." Raymond Chan
