Fromm ‘Clayvin Vineyard’ Marlborough Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 29-Jan-2017
Even, dark ruby-red colour with youthful cerise-purple hues, a little paler on the edge. This ha a gently full and voluminous nose with well-concentrated aromas of a broad array of dark-red and black-berried fruits, showing ripeness and subtle underlying dark herb notes, with dark-red and violet florals, unfolding nuances of spice and liquorice. The aromatics grow in depth and density with aeration. Medium-bodied, the palate features rich, ripe and lusciously succulent flavours of dark-red berry fruits with a range of florals and subtle herbal nuances at the core. The palate has breadth and depth, and the fruit is supported by serious, fine-gained, powdery tannin extraction and grip, with integrated ripe acidity. The structure carries the wine to a long and sustained dry, textural finish of dark-red fruits and liquorice notes. This is a rich, lusciously succulent, dark-red fruited Pinot Noir with an array of fruits and florals, and considerable fine-grained structure. Match with lamb, beef and venison over the next 7-9+ years. Hand-picked fruit from the ‘Clayvin’ vineyard, Brancott Valley, clones 115, 667, 777 and small amounts of 5 and 6, vines 18 y.o., on heavy clay, destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented with whole berries to 13.0% alc., the wine spending 3 weeks on skins and aged 16-18 months in 10% new oak.
