From a Swiss-owned winery in Marlborough. Their passion for Pinot Noir is reflected in the attention to detail shown in the vineyard and throughout the winemaking process. Delicious, impressively pure and lengthy with dark cherry, a gentle earthy touch, and spicy oak flavours. The wine is strongly varietal, fruity and has immediate appeal.
Fromm Pinot Noir 2019
Cameron Douglas MS: 95/100. I've been enjoying this wine over three days to discover that day three delivers the best expression for this wine and vintage. Aromas and flavours of a deeply complex and fine savoury bouquet. Layers of red berries and wood spice, smoky oak and red berry scents of Doris plum and dark cherry, some wild forest berries and kitchen spice suggestions. Equally complex on the palate, dry with a core of fruit, contrasting tannins and acidity layered between savoury, mineral and spice. Delicious, youthful and lengthy. Best drinking from late 2022 through 2030.
James Suckling (JamesSuckling.com): 93/100. Such impressive freshness and vitality of red-cherry fruit on offer here, this has a gently herbal and sappy edge, as well as earth and spice. The palate has such supple and fleshy red-cherry fruit. Impressively pure and bright pinot here. Drink now.
Bright, medium density Pinot colour with a nice dark hue. The nose is youthful, generous and direct, offering ripe dark fruit aromas with a gentle earthy touch and refreshing clarity. At first, the palate is vibrant and appealing with an almost rustic elegance yet without any hard edges. As the wine opens up in the glass, there is a wonderful presence of ripe, crunchy fruit, fine tannins and excellent structure, all blending together into a harmonious and complex Pinot of superb transparency and tension.
