FROMM La Strada Pinot Noir 2013
Decanter World Wine Awards
92 points/ 100
"Bright, high energy Pinot Noir in a moderately flavoursome style, with fresh cherry and plum and delicately spicy oak flavours. Impressive purity, with softer tannins than usual making the wine immediately accessible without compromising longevity."
“This wine is made to be ready for drinking upon release, by 'steering the fermentation towards more fruit expression and moderate tannins and structure'. The 2013 vintage (4.5*), hand-harvested in the Clayvin, Fromm, Quarters and Yarrum vineyards, was matured for 16 months in French oak casks (10-15 per cent new). Ruby hued, it is mouthfilling and supple, with generous cherry, plum and spice flavours, showing very good texture and complexity. It's still youthful; open mid-2016+”
