Fromm ‘Fromm Vineyard’ Marlborough Pinot Noir 2007

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 20-May-2014
Light ruby-red colour with depth, pale on edge. The bouquet is tightly concentrated with aromas of black, minerally fruits, iron and earth, with real depth and intensity, unfolding black and savoury violet florals. Medium-bodied, the black-fruited core exudes iron and mineral layers, the mouthfeel extremely fine-grained in texture with considerable extraction, brooding and still to resolve. The palate has excellent tension, energy and drive, and flows smoothly, unveiling delicate savoury dark herb detail and hints of undergrowth complexities, carrying through to a refined, elegant finish. This still has time to go, another 8-10 years. I sense a Richebourg style here! 19.0/20 May 2014 RRP $N/A Made from 115, 667 and 777, fermented to 14.0% alc., this has a moderately deep ruby-red colour with some garnet hues. Bright fruited on bouquet, this has ripe, aromatic dark raspberry and raspberry liqueur notes with excellent volume. On palate, quite up-front with rich, lush and sweetly ripe dark berry fruits, there are nuances of savoury fruits and herbs with a touch of tar, the expression enlivened by fresh acidity. Underlining the palate are fine-grained tannins providing all the necessary structure for keeping 5-7 years.  18.5/20  Mar 2012
