FROMM Pinot Noir Fromm Vineyard 2014
95 points, Gold Ribbon, 5 Stars
“An elegant pinot noir with gentle cherry, violet, raspberry and spicy oak flavours. Light in colour but not lacking power, as evidenced by its lengthy finish. Lovely purity. An ethereal wine that is a delight to drink now but will age well”
18.5 Points, 5 Stars
“Light ruby-red colour with some depth, lighter on the rim. This has a tight and elegantly expressed nose with ethereal aromas of dark-red berry and cherry fruits entwined with subtle layers and nuances of dark herbs that form a core with depth and brooding density. Notes of liquorice, earth and minerals emerge with aeration. Medium-bodied and fine in presentation, the palate reveals layers of ethereal dark-red berry fruits, dark herbs, liquorice and minerals that unfold from the refined, concentrated core. The mouthfeel is supple with very fine-grained, flowery tannins and structure in support. The wine has linearity with delicacy, and leads to a very long, lingering finish of savoury dark red fruits with herb, earth and mineral detail. This is an elegant, ethereal and complex Pinot Noir with dark-red fruits along with herbs, earth and minerals, and a refined, concentrated, brooding core that will reveal more over the next 6+ years.”

“A Pinot designed to evolve gradually and gracefully, this is elegantly expressed on the nose displaying red/black cherry, game, truffle and floral characters. The palate is concentrated and finely textured with delicate fruit intensity, wonderfully structured by plenty of polished tannins. Refined and stylish, and superbly long on the finish."
