Fromm ‘Quarters Vineyard’ Marlborough Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 02-Feb-2017
Even, dark ruby-red colour with slight purple hues, lighter edged. The nose is elegant, very soft and harmoniously presented with gently interwoven aromas of dark-red berry and cherry fruit, along with subtle notes of fresh herbs and lifted dark-red florals. Black cherry notes emerge from the core with aeration. Medium-bodied, the palate has gently mouthfilling flavours of sweet and lush dark-red berry fruits and hints of strawberries, fresh herbs and red florals. The wine has an attractive balance and flows smoothly and seamlessly with supple tannin extraction guiding the fruit. The acidity is softly ripe and integrated, and the wine carries to a gentle, light, red floral and berry-fruited finish. This is a harmonious, smooth-flowing Pinot Noir with red fruits and florals, supple tannins and structure. Match with poultry dishes over the next 6+ years. Hand-picked fruit from the ‘Quarters’ vineyard, lower Brancott Valley, clones 115, 777, Abel and 5, vines 16-18 y.o., on clay and silt, destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented with whole berries to 13.0% alc., the wine spending 3 weeks on skins and aged 16-18 months in 10% new oak. Certified BioGro Organic. 300 bottles made. 18.5/20 Jan 2017 RRP $55.00
