FROMM Syrah 2017

Michael Cooper, New Zealand Wines
4 Stars

"Certified organic, the 2017 vintage (4*) was hand-harvested, blended with a splash of Viognier (2 per cent), fermented with indigenous yeasts, and matured for 19 months in French oak barrels (less than 10 per cent new). Fullish in colour, it is a fresh, medium-bodied wine, vividly varietal, with strong, plummy, peppery flavours, gentle acidity and supple tannins. Already enjoyable, it should be at its best 2021+."

Elegant and moderately dense syrah with a strong herbal, floral influence waving the cool-climate flag, plus red berry, pepper and spice flavours. A bright, high energy wine with its own distinctive character. 17/4/2019
