Fromm ‘Clayvin Vineyard’ Marlborough Pinot Noir 2013

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 07-May-2015
Dark, deep, purple-hued ruby-red colour, youthful in appearance. The nose is gentle, full and voluminous, with a core of dark red and black berry fruits that opens to reveal subtle dark herb, plum and floral elements along with a little nutty oak and mineral detail. This is beautifully soft and harmoniously integrated. Medium-full bodied, the palate is rich and full with gentle layers of sweetly ripe dark red berry and cherry fruit along with plum notes. The wine has plenty of mouthfilling presence, with soft, integrated, fine-grained tannin structure and soft, ripe acidity in support. This flows seamlessly, with excellent finesse and concentration, leading to a very long and sustained, succulent finish. This is an elegant, mouthfilling Pinot Noir with seamless layers of sweet fruit and integrated, refined tannins. Serve with poultry, pork and lamb dishes over the next 7-8 years. Hand-picked fruit, predominantly Dijon with Abel clones, from the ‘Clayvin’ vineyard, full-destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented with a high portion of whole berries to 13.5% alc., the wine spending 3-4 weeks on skins and aged 18 months in 10-15% new French oak. 3 barrels made. 18.5+/20 May 2015 RRP $80.65
