Syrah, La Strada, Fromm, Marlborough, New Zealand 2011
A perfect example of cold climate Syrah. Fromm have stayed true to their roots making wines that reflect the vineyards in which the vines are grown. Since 1992 they have quietly developed a reputation for crafting distinctive single vineyard wines that genuinely illustrate their terroir. Swiss winemaker Hatsch Kalberer is committed to making wines from grapes grown themselves to organic principles - and we think he and his team are doing some great work!
Deep, inky and concentrated Syrah, rich and ripe without losing its cool climate elegance. The wine has great balance with a delightful freshness, exhibiting dark chocolate, plum and blackcurrant flavours, supported by ample fruit tannins. The spicy finish and summer fruits are outstanding.
