Fromm ‘Fromm Vineyard’ Marlborough Pinot Noir 2016

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 27-Mar-2018
Light ruby-red colour with slight garnet hues, paler on the rim. The nose is softly packed with deep and dense aromas of red cherry and berry fruit entwined with complex dark and dried herb and earthy detail revealing complexing savoury nutty elements. Medium-full bodied, the palate is firmly concentrated with intense and deep flavours of dark-red berry fruit melded with dark and dried herb notes, earth and a little nuttiness. The palate has an array of savoury layers. The fruit is underlined by plenty of grainy-textured tannins lending considerable structure and grip to the mouthfeel. The acidity is soft and integrated. The wine carries with power and drive, leading to a complex detailed, well-structured finish. This is a complex-flavoured Pinot Noir with an array of savoury fruits, herbs and earth, and considerable structure and grip. Serve with casseroles and slow-cooked game meat dishes over the next 6-9 years. Hand-picked fruit, clones 115, 667 and 777 with small amounts of Abel and 5, from the ‘Fromm’ vineyard, Wairau Valley, vines 19-24 y.o., fully destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented with many whole berries to 13.0% alc., the wine spending approx. 3 weeks on skins and aged 16-18 months in 10% new French oak 228 L barrels.
