2019 Fromm Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough

SKU #1463352 94 points Sam Kim

Outer quote mark This is a gorgeously styled sauvignon, showing grapefruit, Granny Smith apple, kaffir lime and flinty aromas on the nose, leading to a finely textured palate that’s focused and persistent. It’s wonderfully structured by firm acidity, finishing impressively long and engaging. At its best: now to 2026. Certified organic. Inner quote mark (2/2020)

93 points Bob Campbell

Outer quote mark I don't know if the fact that this wine is produced from organically-grown grapes has anything to do with its appealing delicacy, freshness and purity. Lime, passionfruit and lemongrass flavours, with an ethereal texture and gently lingering finish. Inner quote mark (1/2020)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This is an expressive and downright delicious Sauvignon from a great vintage and a thoughtful producer. Hand-picked and whole-bunch pressed with six months on lees, there's a refreshing ease of winemaking here. The nose is like unbaked apple crumble combined with notes of lemon verbena and tomato leaf. The texture is gorgeous, with bright acidity and a long lemony, herbal finish. This is good friendly and filled with personality. Inner quote mark (12/2020)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Sourced from the Waihopai Valley, Fromm's 2019 Organic Sauvignon Blanc matured on lees for six months prior to bottling. It's a medium-bodied white, with scents on the sedate gooseberry and pink grapefruit side of the spectrum, rather than crazy thiols and tropical notes. It shows ample concentration and a lovely, silky texture on the palate, lingering on the finish. Inner quote mark (3/2020)

K&L Notes

Fromm is a small organic and Biodynamic practicing estate in Renwick at the center of Marlborough's Wairau Valley. They have been producing wine since 1992 and strive to make hand-crafted wines that represent unique vineyard expressions. After visiting the property in 2011 we knew that these wines were special. We are delighted that we have developed such a great relationship with winemaker Hätsch Kalberer to offer these wines at fraction of their worth due to a direct winery purchase deal. I hope you enjoy the wines as much as we have. Winery note: "This ripe Sauvignon Blanc opens with bright citrus fruit, pithy aromas, along with ripe notes that carry through onto the palate. There is a seam of minerality, with hints of ripe fruit, reflecting anexcellent vintage. The palate shows lovely texture with good fruit weight, without being heavy, along with precise structure and drive. Ending with a dry, firm finish." *organic*

Fromm typically earns more headlines as the premier producer of Pinot Noir in Marlborough, but one of the best-kept secrets in New Zealand is that the Fromm Sauvignon Blanc is every bit as good as their Pinot Noir. This 100% organic Sauvignon Blanc shows a leaner, more focused intensity than many of its vintage counterparts. Fuji apple, grapefruit, lime, and brilliant minerality make this an incredibly refreshing wine, perfect for sipping on a summer day.

A very pleasing, classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, that hits all the right notes one expects from New Zealand. But there's more to it, far from being over the top with the tropical and grassy notes, it actually shows a bit of welcoming (for me) elegant restrain. I had it with classic English fish and chips and it was absolutely delicious!
