Fromm Winery

Fromm Winery Tasting at O'Connell Street Bistro (May 2013)

Fromm Clayvin Chardonnay 2010 
Barrel fermented, 100% MLF Mendoza Clone.
Sophisticated, flavours of stonefruit, citrus and gentle oak spices, fine lees; lovely texture, balance and length.
Delicious with a long, fine and textured finish. 5% New French
5 Stars easy

Fromm La Strada Pinot Noir 2010 14%  
15% New French, Quakes Vineyard plus Clayvin fruit
Clean and gentle with a varietal fruit centred lift. Palate reflects the nose with herbal notes  that soon disappear leaving the wine’s fruit, oak, medium+ tannins and core in place. Very nice.
4.5 Stars

Fromm Brancott Valley Pinot Noir 2009 14%
Slightly denser and richer with darker plum and cherry fruits, oak still noticeable but integrating slowly. Palate reflects the nose, taut tannins. 5+ years wine.
4.5 Stars

Fromm Clayvin Pinot Noir 2011
A very clever wine that shows immaculate youth now but is beginning to show its future – give it time. Medium+ concentration with floral and red apple skin, whole berry/juicy carbonic notes.
P: Firm and youthful with medium+ tannins, medium+ length with a Clayvin sophistication. Very good.
4.5 Stars

Fromm Vineyard (wow)
Such a pretty nose, red apple skin and truffles, Chambolle Musigny reminders. Squeeky cherry, youthful, drinkable now, long finish with a short flick of florals and reminder of something special. I really like this wine!
5 Stars (93 points)

Fromm Syrah 2010 13.5% (3% Viognier, 100% old vines 21 years 1 hectare 4 barrels)
A young but fantastic wine. Peppery, meaty, young leather, blackberry and blueberry, dark raspberry. Medium+ length and finish. Very, very good. Buy!
5 Stars

Fromm Malbec 2010 14.5% (21 years unirrigated vines, 100% Malbec)
Varietal and bold with all the wild back and red fruits, sweet aged meats and a cauldron of mystery and depth. Big pepper notes.
P: Juicy, almost sweet, concentrated and wildly bold. Beats many an Argentinean. 4 barrels. 
5 Stars (92 points)
