This is Fromm’s new flagship Pinot Noir despite being less expensive than Clayvin and La Strada (the previous two flagships). It’s a blend of five completed single vineyard wines representing 'the best Pinot we feel we can make ... in a style we appreciate most.' The wine is named after winemaker Hatsch Kelberer dedicated to the task of making great wine for 25 years. It’s a taut, powerful wine with impressive fruit purity. Layered flavours are hard to define, perhaps cherry, violet, plum and spicy oak with other savoury nuances in the background. More approachable than Clayvin or La Strada but with equal cellaring potential.
Very complex and layered pinot here. There's a wealth of oak spices and gently meaty notes with a cooler floral edge, too. The palate has richness and a very reliable frame of sturdy tannin, and there's a maturity to this wine in every sense. Masterful. Drink now to 2025+.
It is awesome to see a powerful pinot expressed so elegantly with poise and structure. Complex aromas of dark berry, smoked game, dried herb, cedar and floral lead to a beautifully weighted palate that is multi-layered and seamlessly woven. The wine offers outstanding fruit purity combined with seductive savoury complexity, leading to an exceptionally long, engaging finish. Cuvee "H" is named after Hatsch Kalberer who has been the guardian at Fromm Winery since the beginning in 1992. At its best: 2018 to 2025. Certified organic.
Dark ruby-red colour with some depth, lighter on the rim. The nose is elegantly concentrated with an array of dark-red berry and black cherry fruit aromas entwined with subtle notes of dark herbs, red liquorice, spices and dark-red florals. The aromatics grow in volume with aeration. Medium-bodied, the fruit flavours are stylishly restrained in expression, but open to show a harmonious spread of dark-red berry fruits with cherry and herb notes. Liquorice and spice detail add to the interest. The fruit is supported by fine-grained, supple tannin extraction and structure, with soft acidity lending tension and freshness, enhancing the fruit sweetness. The flavours form a positive and concentrated core and line, leading to a long and sustained finish featuring liquorice and spices. This is a stylish Pinot Noir with a full range of red and black fruits, along with herb, liquorice and spice detail on a fine-grained, supple palate. Match with duck, pork, lamb and beef dishes over the next 6 years. A blend of finished single vineyard components. Predominantly clones 115, 667 and 777, making 80% of the blend with some clone 5, 6 and Abel, from the ‘Quarters’, Clayvin’, ‘Fromm’, ‘Churton’ and ‘Yarrum’ vineyards in approx. equal parts, nearly fully destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine spending 3 weeks on skins and aged 14-16 months in 228 L Burgundian piece barrels. Certified BioGro organic. 2,500 bottles made.
Tangy berry and cherry flavors are polished and exuberant, with red licorice, clove and cinnamon accents. Aromatic and elegant. The details really emerge on the finish. Drink now through 2027. (MW, Web Only-2017)
