FROMM Riesling Spätlese 2021

The wine has a greenish/light straw hue and offers classic Granny Smith apple, lime and mandarin peal aromas with some delicate orange blossom florals, all held together with an understated flintstone minerality. The palate is delightfully direct, intensely fruit-driven with a sweetness that is perfectly balanced by the wine’s acidity and firm structure and finishes with a cleansing, mouth-drying taste sensation.

Concentrated dessert riesling with lime zest, mineral and white flower flavours. The wine has exquisite sweet-and-sour tension and a lingering finish. A serious spätlese style rosé at a bargain price. Cellar 2021–2031.

The colour is pale yellow with a greenish hint. The nose opens with pure, vibrant Riesling aromas and an understated complexity, a touch of lemon rind and peach notes, also orange blossom florals. The sweet entry on the palate quickly gives way to a mouth-watering, citrus infused taste sensation and a flavour density that is balanced with cleansing, ripe acidity and subtle flintstone minerality to give a long and “moreish” finish. And with only 7% alcohol, you can indeed enjoy the extra glass.

Deliciously sweet (92 g/l RS) riesling that builds exquisite sweet-and-sour tension. A delicately luscious wine with saline, oyster-shell, citrus, lime juice, and a suggestion of apricot and honey. Should age very well indeed. 21/10/2020    Drink 2020 to 2030

This nails the genre of intense, off-dry riesling and delivers mouthwatering white-peach and lime flavors with attractively fresh and fragrant style. Acidity is pitched in just right on the finish. Delicious! Drink or hold. Screw cap.

FROMM Riesling Spätlese 2019

FROMM Riesling Spätlese 2019 is bright and juicy with enticing vibrancy. This Riesling initially reveals hints of fresh Granny Smith apples, lemon sherbet and kick of feijoa before unravelling to show complex flinty minerals. The palate is sweet but not at all cloying, with tantalising fruit underpinned by a crisp line of balancing acidity and pithy phenolics which ensure you're eager for the next sip (or guzzle).

Moderately sweet riesling with ripe apricot, lime, citrus, green apple and a suggestion of saline-mineral character. Impressive power and purity with a sweet-and-sour balance creating exquisite tension. I like the wine now but it will certainly develop with bottle age. (Screwcap)

A wine that really nails the sweet, juicy and fleshy allure of good Spätlese riesling. Limes and peaches and apricots abound. Sleek, clean and moreish! Drink now. Screw cap.

FROMM Riesling Spätlese 2017

Rich, ripe fruit complimented by fresh acidity and a mineral backbone. A sweet low alcohol Riesling of purity with focus and a long and cleansing finish." March 2018.

A Riesling full of energy. This 2017 arrives with immediate vibrancy showing zesty ripe mandarin and lime fruit, sherbet-like perfume and crisp flintstone minerality. The palate is sweet yet direct, without any cloying character whatsoever. Instead there is a wonderful driving precision and cleansing acidity to the wine that provides a lip smacking moreishness.
