91 points James Suckling: "This carries some more floral notes but is leafy too with violets and undergrowth — all in a very fresh state and all cutting into bright red-cherry fruits. Tannins are nicely stated. They hold well." (03/2017) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Cowley Family Vineyard Main Slopes Pinot Noir is a silky, medium-bodied wine with bright acidity and wonderful purity of fruit. Hints of woodsy spice surround cherry and berry flavors that never seem sweet or confected, instead remaining firm and savory. I could see th ...Read More »

2017 Fromm Spatlese Riesling Marlborough

92 points James Suckling: "This delivers a good balance of sweet, rich and fleshy texture and vibrant acidity. Flinty aromas of white peaches and apples follow on to fresh white peaches on the palate. Drink now. Screw cap." (10/2018) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the winery's most consistent bottlings over the years, the 2017 Riesling Spatlese continues that tradition.

Bottled straight after malolactic with no Sulphur addition, this wine is almost in the rawest form possible. It is cloudy and this adds to the overall textural experience."

2016 Fromm "La Strada" Marlborough Syrah

93 points James Suckling: "A spicy, mid-weight syrah that has attractive peppery and spicy allure, across red-plum and raspberry aromas. Brisk, succulent and energetic tannins carve a long, contained shape on the palate. Bright, red-fruit finish. Drink now." (10/2018) 92 points Bob Campbell: "Moderately dense, bright and vibrant Syrah with floral, violet, pepper, raspberry, plum and spicy oak flavours. An approachable and delicately perfumed wine offering value at this price. " (06/2018) K&L Notes: Fromm is a small organic and Biodynamic practicing e ...Read More »
