FROMM Pinot Noir Cuvée "H" 2017

Our FROMM Pinot Noir Cuvee “H” is a thoughtful blend of our individual single vineyard Pinots. Incorporating the qualities of each of these wines into a premium blend (Cuvée) gives us a Pinot that is balanced yet complex; powerful yet elegant. It’s certainly a style that we enjoy drinking.

Our 2017 shows lovely depth of fruit, opening with dark red, blue berries and an underlay of ripe cherries. The aromas then reveal a granite-like minerality, inviting florals, lifting sage herbs and a lick of sweet vanilla spice. The palate is generous with good fruit weight, velvety layered tannins and enhancing, enticing acidity. We built this wine to last but are delighted with its charm and approachability now. Every component complements the other in seamless harmony - rather like a well-rehearsed orchestra. A lovely mix of complexity and finesse adds to the wine’s fineness.

Reviews -----96 points - 5 stars

This is a bold, complex and spicy pinot with plenty of ripe dark cherries and red
berries, brash but integrated toasty oak, pomegranate and spices in abundance.
This all leads to a super succulent palate that drives energetic, rich and scintillatingly fresh red-cherry and blood orange flavors long, amid smoothly polished tannins.    Drink or hold. Screw cap.

In honour of Fromm's winemaker, Hatsch Kalberer, who blended wines from several vineyards to produce this rich, ripe and complex pinot noir with plum, savoury, herb, spice and nutty oak flavours. An impressive wine that's an advertisement for blending rather than expressing place. 11 MAR 2019 20192023

"Certified organic, the lovely 2017 vintage (5*) is labelled in honour of Hätsch Kalberer, Fromm's winemaker since the first vintage in 1992. Designed as 'a mindful blend of what our single-vineyard wines offer as a composite', it is a classy wine, full-coloured, with generous, vibrant, youthful cherry, plum and spice flavours, finely structured, supple and persistent. Still a baby, it has obvious cellaring potential; best drinking 2022+."

FROMM Pinot Noir Cuvée "H" 2016

Named after our winemaker Hätsch Kalberer, this wine reflects his 25 years of knowledge and understanding of several great Marlborough terroirs. A thoughtful composite of our five individual single vineyard wines, Cuvée “H” expresses a winery signature. It is the best Pinot we feel we can make and represents what we appreciate most in fine Pinot Noir. 

Officially released in 2017 at Pinot 2017, the Fromm Pinot Noir Cuvée 'H' 2015 was the first vintage release of this wine. 

5 Stars 
"A hint of cedar accents maraschino cherries on the nose, followed by a medium-bodied wine of exceptional texture and purity. The silky tannins linger on the finish, mingling with red berries in an exciting fruity-savory tango." 
Joe, Czerwinski, The Wine Advocate, March 2018
