"Moderately light, supple pinot noir with a clear Fromm signature, though perhaps slightly lighter, softer and more accessible than their single vineyard wines. Delicate black cherry, violet and spicy oak flavours with appealing purity." The Real review, April 2018

"Moderately deep ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the edge with slight purple hues. The nose is softly concentrated with gently packed aromas of dark-red berry fruits with nuances of raspberry liqueur entwined with dark herbal nuances, along with dark-red florals. Medium-full bodied, the palate has sweet, juicy and lively fruit flavours of dark-red berry fruits intermingling with fresh and dark herbs, with raspberry liqueur and floral elements adding interest. The fruit sweetness is balanced by light, grainy tannin structure with fine, lacy acidity lending an up-front mouthfeel with good presence and texture. The flavours carry positively to a lingering finish of raspberry liqueur. This is a sweet and juicy-fruited Pinot Noir with lively dark-red berry, herb and raspberry liqueur flavours on a grainy-textured palate. Match with poultry and pork dishes over the next 5 years."

"Pristine and bright, this delightfully fruited pinot shows red/black cherry, cranberry, floral and subtle dried herb aromas on the nose, leading to a finely textured palate that is elegantly weighted and beautifully smooth. The wine offers vibrancy as well as refinement, finishing persistent and juicy. At its best: now to 2022."

“A fruit-forward nose with bright red cherries and strawberries, presented
in fresh, sappy mode. The palate has a bright, fleshy and fresh array of red
cherries with smoothly rendered tannins.”
