2017 Fromm "Clayvin Vineyard" Pinot Noir Marlborough

SKU #1390463 97 points Sam Kim

Outer quote mark A magnificent offering; the fabulously fragrant bouquet shows dark berry aromas with dried herb, warm spice, flint, almond and floral notes, followed by a impeccably focused palate that offers outstanding weight and depth. It is multi-layered and symphonic, as well as firmly structured, promising to evolve graciously. From the Brancott Valley district. At its best: 2020 to 2030. Certified organic. Inner quote mark (5/2019)

96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A strong red-cherry nose with a deep sense of complexity that is, for now, tightly buried in this young pinot. There is plenty of spice and earthy sous bois to come with some more time. The pedigree is instantly seen on the palate with an enthralling interplay of power and elegance. Long, fresh and pure cherries and red plums fold through layers of fine tannins. Drink in 2023. *Top 100 New Zealand Wines of 2018* Inner quote mark (12/2018)

95 points Bob Campbell

Outer quote mark Bright, fresh, high energy Pinot Noir with cherry, fresh herb, floral, red rose, and spicy oak flavours. Fromm's best known Pinot Noir showing good concentration and consistency, the benefits, perhaps, of vine age. Inner quote mark (3/2019)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Hints of struck flint and pencil shavings join black cherries on the nose of the 2017 Clayvin Vineyard Pinot Noir. Medium to full-bodied, with a dry, dusty, firm finish marked by sturdy tannins, this wine needs at least 2-3 years in the cellar to soften and fill out. (JC) 92+ Inner quote mark (3/2019)

90 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Evolving beautifully, with dark cherry, wet earth, floral and mineral notes. Beautifully structured, ambitious and well made wine. (Panel Tasting) Inner quote mark (2/2020)

One of Fromm’s single vineyard offerings, the 2017 Clayvin Vineyard Pinot Noir is much more brooding, with dark, supple fruits, earthy spice, and a long finish, and offers a fascinating contrast to the other single vineyard bottlings.
