Fromm Malbec Fromm Vineyard (2017)

Estate-grown in Marlborough and hand-picked from mature vines, this red is recommended by winemaker Hätsch Kalberer for drinking with 'a large piece of wild venison'. The 2017 vintage (4.5*) is rare – only four barrels were made. Oak-aged for 19 months, it has deep, purple-flushed colour. Fresh, spicy aromas lead into a full-bodied, very youthful wine, with strong plum, spice and blackcurrant flavours, good tannin backbone, and a long finish. Unusually refined for Malbec, it should break into full stride 2021+. Certified organic.
