Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"Named after our winemaker Hätsch Kalberer, this wine reflects his 25 years of knowledge and understanding of several great Marlborough terroirs. A thoughtful composite of our five individual single vineyard wines, Cuvée “H” expresses a winery signature. It is the best Pinot we feel we can make and represents what we appreciate most in fine Pinot Noir.

This wine has a beguiling prettiness with underpinning depth and complexity. It opens with a bright kirsch character before revealing darker blue fruits. There is silky spice and a hint of charcuterie savouriness built atop of lifting minerality. The palate shows good fruit weight, ripe flavours and an effortless structure. The wine’s tannins are well layered and are complimented by balanced acidity and subtle well integrated oak, all driving the wine through to a long, mouth-watering finish."
5  Stars & 95/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, May 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"The second vintage of a new label named after Fromm winemaker, Hätsch Kalberer. Taut, pure pinot noir with dark cherry, blackcurrant, violet and subtle herbal flavours supported by fine and integrated tannins. An impressive wine with a Fromm signature."
5 Stars Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, March 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"A hint of cedar accents maraschino cherries on the nose, followed by a medium-bodied wine of exceptional texture and purity. The silky tannins linger on the finish, mingling with red berries in an exciting fruity-savoury tango."
5 Stars & 19.0-/20 Raymond Chan, March 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"Even ruby-red colour with a hint of garnet, a little lighter edged. The nose is softly full, a little restrained in expression, but unfolding a layered aromatic array showing dark-red berry fruits with hints of liquorice, herbs and spice nuances, and ethereal red florals. This is refined and gentle in expression. Medium-bodied, the palate is rich and sweet with lusciously succulent flavours of dark-red cherry and berry fruit, melded with notes of liquorice and spices, and some lifted oak. The fruit flavours gently fill the palate and are supported by very fine-grained tannins with balanced acidity. The wine carries with drive and fine textural grip, leading to an elegant, lingering finish. This is a sweetly rich and succulent Pinot Noir with an array of red fruits, and nuances of liquorice and spices along with fragrant florals on a very fine-textured palate. Match with poultry, pork and beef dishes over the next 6+ years. A blend of 5 complete single vineyard wines, these being ‘Clayvin’, ‘Fromm’, ‘Quarters’, ‘Churton’ and ‘Yarrum’, clones 115, 667 and 777, comprising approx. 80% with 5, Abel and 6, fully destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented with many whole berries to 13.0% alc., the wine spending approx. 3 weeks on skins and aged 14-16 months in 10% new French oak 228 L barrels. Certified BioGro organic. 4,500 bottles made."
