Fromm La Strada Marlborough Syrah (2016)

A cool-climate, 'fruit-driven' style – with style. The 2016 vintage (4.5*), which includes a splash of Viognier, is certified organic. From various sites in the Wairau Valley, it was hand-picked and matured for 16 to 18 months in barriques and puncheons (almost all seasoned, rather than new). It's a very fragrant red, full-bodied, with ripe plum, spice and black-pepper flavours, slightly earthy notes, gentle tannins, and excellent depth and harmony. Best drinking 2021+.
