Fromm ‘Fromm Vineyard’ Marlborough Pinot Noir 2014

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 28-Jul-2016
Light ruby-red colour with some depth, lighter on the rim. This has a tight and elegantly expressed nose with ethereal aromas of dark-red berry and cherry fruits entwined with subtle layers and nuances of dark herbs that form a core with depth and brooding density. Notes of liquorice, earth and minerals emerge with aeration. Medium-bodied and fine in presentation, the palate reveals layers of ethereal dark-red berry fruits, dark herbs, liquorice and minerals that unfold from the refined, concentrated core. The mouthfeel is supple with very fine-grained, flowery tannins and structure in support. The wine has linearity with delicacy, and leads to a very long, lingering finish of savoury dark red fruits with herb, earth and mineral detail. This is an elegant, ethereal and complex Pinot Noir with dark-red fruits along with herbs, earth and minerals, and a refined, concentrated, brooding core that will reveal more over the next 6+ years. Match with wild duck or pork. Dijon clone fruit predominantly clone 115 with 777 and 667, plus Abel, hand-picked, fully destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented with a high proportion of whole berries to 13.0% alc., the wine spending 3-4 weeks on skins and aged 18 months in approx. 10% new French oak 228 L piece barrels. Certified BioGro organic. 150 dozen produced. 18.5+/20 Jul 2016 RRP $84.40
