This Rhone style syrah offering distinct varietal definition.
A deeply proper cool climate Syrah. Everything about it hails from the northern Rhone than from New Zealand. A co-ferment of Syrah with a dash of Viognier with abundant clove and white pepper on the nose and palate. It’s like strapping yourself into a red capsicum rocket! Really bright, just 12% ABV, you’ll struggle to remove your glass from the nose to drink such are the crazy aromas. It’s delightfully pretty, perfumed Syrah and quite unlike everything else from the region. As ever Fromm are from Marlborough but not of Marlborough.
Founded by Georg Fromm, a fourth generation Swiss winemaker in the late 80's, the name Fromm signifies the
journey made from the old world to the new and is a signature element of intuitive winemakers, Hatsch Kalberer
(the Swiss traditionalist & first to make Kiwi Pinot Noir) and William Hoare (Kiwi modernist) throughout the range.
The Fromm philosophy places terroir over technology and grape quality over quantity with dedication to
producing proper, intense, concentrated wines. Fromm are passionate about their vineyard health believing that
careful canopy management should result in little requirement for the use of sprays as healthy grapes free of
harmful residues make better wines. Fromm Vineyard has been free of systemic sprays for many years and now
with the advent of mechanical undervine weeders is now weed spray free as well. The company has been slowly
learning about biodynamic practices, each year gaining a better understanding of what works well. Recently it
was decided to run Fromm Vineyard as a fully organic vineyard, with the assistance of biodynamic practices
alongside. It is hoped that it will be possible to extend an organic/biodynamic programme across all of the
vineyards. The future of Fromm lies in caring for the health of the vineyards, the environment and the people
who work together with them.
