Fromm ‘Fromm Vineyard’ Marlborough Malbec 2016

Malbec from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 10-Jun-2018
Very full, saturated purple-black red colour, very youthful in appearance. The nose is refined in expression with rich and deeply packed aromas of ripe blackberry fruit along with black plums, mulberries and an amalgam of soft spices and florals, unfolding nuances of black herbs and currants. The aromatics grow in depth and intensity with aeration. Medium-full bodied, the palate is softly full with deep flavours of blackberries, black plums and mulberries along with subtle nuances of spice, unfolding florals and curranty nuances. The flavours are rich and up-front, and unfold a layer of spicy detail. The palate is underlined by plenty of grainy tannin extraction with integrated acidity. The wine carries firm and fulsome finish of black fruits, spices and herbs. This is a full and rich Malbec with black fruits, spices and curranty notes on a considerably well-structured palate. Match with game meat dishes and semi-hard cheeses over the next 8-10 years. Fruit from the ‘Fromm’ vineyard, Wairau Valley, vines 25 y.o., and close-planted at 4,700 vines per ha, hand-picked and destemmed, indigenous yeast fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 18 months in seasoned oak. Certified BioGro organic. 4 barrels made. 18.5+/20 Jun 2018 RRP $65.00
