Winery notes (2014 Vintage)
"In almost a contradiction of terms this Pinot is both understated and revealing. The nose offers attractive red florals with hints of wild strawberries (due in no small part to the larger portion of whole berries in the ferment), black cherries and bramble. There is a lacing of sweet spices (liquorice, cloves, star anise) and an underlining subtle earthiness. The palate is very structured with layered tannins that are fine and persistent. Tipping its hat to the wines of Europe in the traditional sense, this wine is defined by a seductive yet elusive flavour profile that almost evades the aroma wheel of descriptors. Certainly a terroir driven style."
5 Stars & 95/100​ Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review (2014 Vintage)
"An elegant pinot noir with gentle cherry, violet, raspberry and spicy oak flavours. Light in colour but not lacking power, as evidenced by its lengthy finish. Lovely purity. An ethereal wine that is a delight to drink now but will age well."
5 Stars & 18.5+/20 Raymond Chan, July 2016 (2014 Vintage)
"Light ruby-red colour with some depth, lighter on the rim. This has a tight and elegantly expressed nose with ethereal aromas of dark-red berry and cherry fruits entwined with subtle layers and nuances of dark herbs that form a core with depth and brooding density. Notes of liquorice, earth and minerals emerge with aeration. Medium-bodied and fine in presentation, the palate reveals layers of ethereal dark-red berry fruits, dark herbs, liquorice and minerals that unfold from the refined, concentrated core. The mouthfeel is supple with very fine-grained, flowery tannins and structure in support. The wine has linearity with delicacy, and leads to a very long, lingering finish of savoury dark red fruits with herb, earth and mineral detail. This is an elegant, ethereal and complex Pinot Noir with dark-red fruits along with herbs, earth and minerals, and a refined, concentrated, brooding core that will reveal more over the next 6+ years. Match with wild duck or pork. Dijon clone fruit predominantly clone 115 with 777 and 667, plus Abel, hand-picked, fully destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented with a high proportion of whole berries to 13.0% alc., the wine spending 3-4 weeks on skins and aged 18 months in approx. 10% new French oak 228 L piece barrels. Certified BioGro organic. 150 dozen produced."
95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit (2014 Vintage)
"A pinot designed to evolve gradually and gracefully, this is elegantly expressed on the nose displaying red/black cherry, game, truffle and floral characters. The palate is concentrated and finely textured with delicate fruit intensity, wonderfully structured by plenty of polished tannins. Refined and stylish, and superbly long on the finish. At its best: 2017 to 2024."
4 Stars Michael Cooper (2014 Vintage)
"Winemaker Hätsch Kalberer describes this Marlborough red as 'not a typical New World style, but the truest expression of terroir you could find'. In the Fromm Vineyard near Renwick, in the heart of the Wairau Valley, many clones of Pinot Noir are close-planted on a flat site with alluvial topsoils overlying layers of clay and free-draining gravels. The wine is fermented with indigenous yeasts, matured for 18 months in Burgundy oak barrels, and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Certified organic, the savoury 2014 vintage is lightish in colour, with mouthfilling body, fairly firm tannins, and strong, ripe cherry, plum and nut flavours, showing good complexity."
