Fromm Winery 'La Strada' Syrah 2014 Marlborough
An alluring floral and core of fruit bouquet with ripe black currant, raspberry and blueberry fruits, no mistaking the toasty spicy oak layer, but not overdone either - aromas of clove and vanilla and hints of bacon. On the palate - very expressive, fruity, dry and spicy with a mix of peppercorn and clove, plenty of tannin action and a back bone of acidity; a youthful wine still on its development journey. Overall youthful and complex with a great core of fruit. Drink now and through 2028.
Fromm Winery Riesling Spatlese 2016 Marlborough
Distinctive bouquet of fresh picked citrus fruits and green apple, some reductive signs swirl away to leave a sherbet and wet stone mineral layer adding complexity and charm. On the palate - off dry in a sweeter Spatlese style - castor sugar, sherbet, grated green apple and crisp preserved lemon flavours; high acidity and lengthy finish. A delicious wine destined to age for a long time if you can wait long enough. Drink now and through 2030+.
