Fromm ‘La Strada’ Marlborough Pinot Noir 2011

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 24-Jul-2013
Dark, deep ruby-red colour with a black-hued heart and lighter garnet on rim. The bouquet is gentle and even with ethereal perfumes of dark red berry fruits and fresh red floral detail interwoven harmoniously with red liquorice and raspberry notes. Medium-bodied, restrained flavours of dark red berries and florals are supported by very fine-grained tannins and supple, dry textures. The acidity is in the background enhancing the soft, rounded mouthfeel. The palate flows smoothly and with a sense of balance and completeness to a soft, dry finish with good length. This is a harmoniously balanced Pinot Noir with ethereal red fruits and soft, dry textures. Serve with poultry and rabbit dishes over the next 5-6 years. Predominantly clones 115, 5 and 6, from the ‘Fromm’, ‘Quarters’ and ‘Clayvin’ vineyards, from vines averaging 16 y.o., fully destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine spending 2-3 weeks on skins and aged in barrel. 18.0-/20 Jul 2013 RRP $39.95
