Fromm ‘Fromm Vineyard’ Marlborough Pinot Noir 2013

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 07-May-2015
Hand-picked fruit, predominantly Dijon with Abel clones, from the ‘Fromm’ vineyard, full-destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented with a high portion of whole berries to 13.5% alc.,the wine spending 3-4 weeks on skins and aged 18 months in 10-15% new French oak. Unfined and unfiltered. Moderately deep ruby-red colour with lighter garnet hues on the rim. The nose is full with delicate and ethereal aromas of black cherry and black berried fruits intermixed with black minerally elements forming a tight core. Spice notes and piquant herb and stalk nuances are lifted by violet florals, and nuances of nuts and cherry liqueur unfold. Medium-full bodiedthe palate features a tightly concentrated heart of ripe black berry and cherry fruit entwined with black mineral note. The fruit is supported by considerable extract and structure, the tannins very fine-grained and flowery in texture. Ripe acidity adds to the palate tension, vitality and linearity, and the wine carries to a very long, fine, dry finish with black fruit and mineral flavours. This is an elegant, refined black-fruited Pinot Noir with considerable tannin structure and grip. Match with lamb, beef, venison and hard cheeses over the next 8-10 years. 3 barrels made. 19.0-/20 May 2015 RRP $80.65
