FROMM Pinot Noir Fromm Vineyard 2017 Magnum

Our FROMM Pinot Noir Fromm Vineyard reflects over a quarter of a century of farming our patch of land just west of Renwick. It’s grown, not ‘made’, and represents a style of Pinot that we love …elegant and subtle with complexity and

This 2017 has an alluring nose, opening with charming bright fruit, sweet spice and inviting florals – all wrapped in lifting minerality. The palate shows effortless structure, supported by ripe red fruit and fine persistent tannins that flow across
the mouth. The acidity is balance and conducive to a long elegant finish.

Michael Cooper, New Zealand Wines - 5 Stars

"Winemaker Hätsch Kalberer describes this Marlborough red as 'not a typical New World style, but the truest expression of terroir you could find'. In the Fromm Vineyard near Renwick, in the heart of the Wairau Valley, many clones of Pinot Noir are close-planted on a flat site with alluvial topsoils overlying layers of clay and free-draining gravels. The wine is fermented with indigenous yeasts, matured for 18 months in Burgundy oak barrels (six in 2017), and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Certified organic, the impressive 2017 vintage (*) looks set for a very long life. Full-coloured, it is savoury, ripe and finely structured, with deep plum, spice and nut flavours. A more graceful, supple red than some earlier vintages, with power through the palate, it's a top vintage, well worth cellaring to 2021+." 

Bob Campbell --- 94/100 Points

Rich, fleshy pinot noir, with appealing fruit sweetness and luscious plum, ripe cherry and nutty oak flavours. The wine seems softer, silkier and more accessible than I remember it. It will no doubt age well, but can be savoured without guilt right now.    2019–2023.        11 Mar 2019
