Fromm ‘La Strada Reserve’ Marlborough Syrah 2001

Syrah from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 20-May-2014
Very dark, deep, black-red colour, this has a very full, densely packed and concentrated bouquet of earthy black fruits, black pepper and tar, with complex, savoury game aromas, well into the secondary phase. Full-bodied and firmly concentrated on palate, flavours of black fruits, iron and minerals prevail, with background pepper and spice elements adding detail. The tannin extraction is serious, bolstering the concentrated core with density and depth. The palate has real power and drive, with good acidity, carrying the flavours and structure to a firm, tannic finish. This has the depth and power to see the wine age another 8-10 years. 18.5-/20 May 2014 RRP $N/A Syrah and a tiny amount of Viognier, from the ‘Fromm' vineyard, fermented to 13.5% alc. Black-red colour, near impenetrable. The bouquet is soft, gentle, and harmoniously integrated with fine black fruits and subtle savoury lift and pepper. Medium-bodied, this is mellow and softly mouthfilling with luscious, savoury dark red fruits and peppery notes. This has an elegance to the presentation, and the wine is one of maturity with finesse. Drinking well now and over the next 3-4+ years.  18.5+/20  Mar 2012
