Fromm ‘Cuvee H’ Marlborough Pinot Noir 2016

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 27-Mar-2018
Even ruby-red colour with a hint of garnet, a little lighter edged. The nose is softly full, a little restrained in expression, but unfolding a layered aromatic array showing dark-red berry fruits with hints of liquorice, herbs and spice nuances, and ethereal red florals. This is refined and gentle in expression. Medium-bodied, the palate is rich and sweet with lusciously succulent flavours of dark-red cherry and berry fruit, melded with notes of liquorice and spices, and some lifted oak. The fruit flavours gently fill the palate and are supported by very fine-grained tannins with balanced acidity. The wine carries with drive and fine textural grip, leading to an elegant, lingering finish. This is a sweetly rich and succulent Pinot Noir with an array of red fruits, and nuances of liquorice and spices along with fragrant florals on a very fine-textured palate. Match with poultry, pork and beef dishes over the next 6+ years. A blend of 5 complete single vineyard wines, these being ‘Clayvin’, ‘Fromm’, ‘Quarters’, ‘Churton’ and ‘Yarrum’, clones 115, 667 and 777, comprising approx. 80% with 5, Abel and 6, fully destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented with many whole berries to 13.0% alc., the wine spending approx. 3 weeks on skins and aged 14-16 months in 10% new French oak 228 L barrels.
