Fromm ‘Fromm Vineyard’ Marlborough Syrah 2015

Syrah from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 26-Sep-2017
Dark, deep, purple-hued ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the edge, and youthful in appearance. The nose is soft and full with gentle volume of near-ethereal aromas of blackberry fruit and dark raspberries, entwined with dark-red and violet florals and hints of spices. This is very refined in expression. Medium-full bodied, the palate is finely proportioned with an elegantly concentrated core with flavours of black-berried fruits and dark raspberries, melded with dark-red and violet florals and hints of spice and liquorice. The mouthfeel is very fine, featuring powdery tannin extraction and integrated acidity. The flavours carry with harmony, finesse and linearity to a very long and sustained, tightly concentrated finish of black fruits, spices and violet florals. This is an ethereal Syrah with underlying concentration and depth and refined black and raspberry fruits, violet florals and spices. Serve with pork, lamb and beef dishes over the next 7-10 years. Predominantly MS clone fruit with a small portion of clone 174, vines over 20 y.o., hand-picked and indigenous yeast co-fermented with 3% Viognier to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 18 months in seasoned 228 L pieces. Certified BioGro organic. 4 barrels made. 18.5+/20 Sep 2017 RRP $65.00
