2020 Fromm Chenin Blanc
2020 Fromm Chenin Blanc
Georg Fromm and Hätsch Kalberer met in the late 1980s and decided to create Fromm Winery in Marlborough, NZ. The first vines were planted under the guidance of Georg but it was years later (in 1992), after the talking became planning, and the planning became planting, Fromm Winery officially started with its very first harvest. Since then Fromm Winery has built an international reputation by producing an array of outstanding wines that reflect both European style and Kiwi ingenuity.
Georg Fromm returned to his family winery in Malans, Switzerland in 2008, but the winemaking team continues to make wines that truly show the expression of their environment. Ranging from elegant Pinot Noir to Syrah co-fermented with Viognier, high quality Chardonnay and rather uniquely, they can proudly claim that they boast the oldest single vineyard Malbec in New Zealand. Today the passion for wine continues but under the careful eye of family friend and owner Pol Lenzinger, co-owner Stephan Walliser and Swiss business partner George Walliser.
Tasting Note: (Winemaker)
This Chenin Blanc comes from the Wrekin Vineyard in the Brancott Valley. The colour is pale yellow with a greenish hue. On the nose this wine could easily be mistaken for a Chablis with its austere, cool nose, chalky minerality and subtle floral notes, which follow through on the saline-inflected palate that is focused and tight structured without being forceful or aggressive. The wine is uncompromisingly dry with firm but moderate acidity, resulting in a refined texture on the long and refreshing finish, perfect with freshly shucked oysters.
This is a Dry, Medium bodied wine with High acidity and No tannin. It is Medium in it's intensity with Medium alcohol and a Medium- finish.
