Opening with vibrant bright, red fruit aromas, the nose is under laced with earthy undertones, and a subtle dusting of oak. The palate is medium weight with supple fine tannin support. This wine is more a reflection of its terroirs and the vintage than just simply nice Pinot Noir fruit.
Sam Kim, wineorbit.co.nz 94/100 Points-5 Stars (Outstanding quality showing varietal purity and exemplifying regional type). Elegant and splendidly complex, the inviting bouquet shows red cherry, spiced plum, olive, violet and subtle mushroom characters. The palate delivers lovely weight and flow with fabulous fruit purity, wonderfully complemented by refined mouthfeel and polished tannins. It’s stylish and harmonious with a lengthy textured finish. At its best: now to 2026. Certified organic.
Bob Campbell, therealreview.com 93/100 Points - 5 Stars A very good example of Marlborough pinot noir with red fruits, a suggestion of floral and attractive spicy oak that flatters rather than competes with winemaker artefact. 2020–2025. 22 Jan 2020
James Suckling jamessuckling.com 93/100 Points Very layered and all seamlessly integrated with bright red cherries and some spice and stony notes. The palate has a smooth, lightly grainy texture. Brighter cherry flavors are underpinned by gently chalky, stony tannins. Acidity cleanses the finish and holds it in tautly focused mode. From organically grown grapes. Drink over the next five years.
Wine Enthusiast 93 points "This is a bright and bouncy springtime Pinot from the well regarded organic producer FROMM. The cinnamon and clove spice get along graciously with the slinky red and blueberry fruit and floral characters. Tingly acidity on the palate makes the fruit pop. It’s backed by savory, sappy notes and a talc-like cinch of tannins that hits just at the right spot. Light-bodied and chillable, this is a playful yet seriously well made wine. Drink now–2027."
