Fromm ‘Fromm Vineyard’ Marlborough Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 29-Jan-2017
Even ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is elegantly proportioned with firmly concentrated and intense, refined aromas of black-berried fruits and black minerals entwined with notes of liquorice and spices, unfolding a layer of dark herbs, black florals and hints of nutty oak. Medium-full bodied, the palate has intense and concentrated flavours of sweetly ripe black-berried fruits alongside black minerals and liquorice. Soft black florals, spices and suggetions of nutty oak add complexing detail. The wine is refreshing with lacy acidity, and very fine-grained flowery tannin extraction balances the fruit richness and intensity. The mouthfeel exudes excellent vitality, energy and drive, and carries to a long, concentrated, elegant and sustained , textural finish of black fruits and minerals. This is an intensely concentrated, very fine-grained Pinot Noir with flavours of black fruits and minerals, with vitality and energy, freshness and linearity. Match with roasted and grilled game meats and semi-hard cheeses. Hand-picked fruit from the ‘Fromm’ vineyard, Wairau Valley, clones 115, 667, 777 and small amounts of Abel and 5, vines 18-23 y.o., on alluvial gravel and silt, destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented with whole berries to 13.5% alc., the wine spending 3 weeks on skins and aged 16-18 months in 10% new oak.
