Fromm ‘Fromm Vineyard’ Marlborough Pinot Noir 2012

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 01-Jul-2014
Ruby-red colour with a pale edge. The bouquet is full, soft and gentle in density with a core of red berry fruits and minerals, unfolding red and violet florals, and the beginnings of secondary earth, ink and tar. On palate, quite restrained in fruit expression, with a latent fruit sweetness that unfolds. The palate has density and extract, allied to finesse, the tannins flowing with velvety smoothness, and carrying to a very long, soft, textured, near sinewy finish. This is classical ‘Fromm Vineyard’, with its shy restraint, minerally structure and the need for aeration or bottle age to reveal its terroir and quality. And quality it has indeed, proven over many vintages. 18.5/20 Jun 2014 RRP $80.50 Darkish, deep, purple-red colour, the nose is a little shy, with densely packed black fruit and black mineral and earthy notes and fine aromatic lift providing elegance and finesse. This has presence and is bound up at present. Medium-full bodied, concentrated flavours of black fruit and dark cherry essence meld with a refined, firm core, the tannin extraction very fine providing a powdery, silky mouthfeel. The fruit sweetness is underlying and lifted with fine, ripe acidity, become more luscious in the glass. Dark red berry fruits and dark red florals emerge and lead to an aromatic, sweet-nuanced finish. A wine that will evolve over 8-10 years. 19.0/20 May 2014 RRP $80.95
