Fromm Chardonnay 2019
Cameron Douglas MS: 96/100. Sophisticated, elegant, pure, youthful and varietal. There's a wonderful bouquet of complexity from ripe citrus and stone fruit scents to an abundance of fine lees complexity and gentle barrel spice. A raw cashew nut and heady soil lees complexity layers in breadth and depth without compromising the core varietal signature and sense of place. Delicious on the palate in a natural dry expression, flavours of lemon and grapefruit, white stone fruits and blossoms. The lees and fine oak layer deliver texture and breadth, length and pleasure. A great wine of Marlborough with best drinking from late 2022 through 2028+.
The colour is pale yellow with a green hue. The nose offers some understated stonefruit aromas, lemon and a discreet flintstone minerality that adds to the wine's overall austere complexity and follows through on the tight and focused palate. It's a deliberate stylistic choice in the vinification to emphasise minerality and vineyard expression over generic Chardonnay aromas, tropical fruit or oak complexities. This is a wonderful Chardonnay, precise and tight, but never aggressive, with good density and a firm textural quality, complemented by the positive phenolics.
