FROMM Pinot Noir Cuvée "H" 2020
Dense, deep red colour. The nose is concentrated yet fragrant with dark fruit aromas, complex, focused and very expressive. On the palate again concentration without being heavy. An elegant Pinot Noir with beautiful transparency, excellent structure and tension and very fine tannin support in the finish, reflecting one of our most exciting vintages since 2010.

FROMM Pinot Noir Cuvée "H" 2019

The wine shows a dark-red Pinot colour with a beautiful vibrant shine. Its complex, fragrant and seductively poised nose reveals an airy freshness, red berries, some spice and violet notes. In short, this is “elegance pure”.

The palate is simply delicious, full of energy and underlying tension with a velvety texture and fine tannin support. There is excellent mid-palate density to the generously proportioned flavours that are both precise and refined. A stylish expression of a potentially very big vintage while preserving the wine’s finer details.

Elegant, intense pinot noir with red fruits, mineral, floral and spice flavours together with a savoury, dried herb and baked-earth character. An accessible wine with impressive underlying power. Obvious cellaring potential 2021–2027. Under cork.

16 Nov, 2021 – Quite vividly spicy and a little savory, too, this has dried berries, earth, forest wood and roses, as well as subtle, meaty elements. Plenty of spice, too. The palate holds a fleshy core of concentrated red-cherry flavor, together with some raspberry and red plum. This is a silky pinot with savory-tinged flavors that builds weight and tannin through the finish. Drink or hold.

Our FROMM Pinot Noir Cuvée “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.

Bob Campbell MV   therealreview.com   95/100 points-5 StarsA blend of Fromm's single vineyard wines that's right up to their very high standards. A solid core of ripe cherry and berry, with a seasoning of savoury, dried herb, spice and nutty oak characters. Savour it now or enjoy it in a few years. 20202026             02 APR 2020


James Suckling   jamessuckling.com   95/100 points-5 Stars This has a rich array of red cherries and blueberries with a sappy and herbal edge. The palate rolls out attractively mouth-filling, fleshy pinot fruit and carries a long, plush and building wave of tannin. Dark-cherry finish. Drink or hold.

 Sam Kim, wineorbit.co.nz  95/100 points-5 Stars 

Offering wonderful fruit purity and elegant complexity, the wine shows dark cherry, raspberry, floral, thyme and anise notes on the nose. The palate is concentrated and textural with flowing mouthfeel and fine-grained tannins, making the wine refined and beautifully structured. It's youthfully charming and splendidly balanced with outstanding harmony and length. At its best: 2021 to 2028.  www.frommwinery.co.nz. March 2020.

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.

FROMM Pinot Noir Cuvee "H" 2017   jamessuckling.com -----96 points

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.

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
