Description

Mike Patterson's much lauded new Corofin label has made waves among the fine wine community with outstanding wines from Dog Point's Settlement Vineyard in the Omaka Valley, and now a Pinot Noir off the Cowley Vineyard, owned by brothers Luc and Ben Cowley of Auntsfield. Mike prefers to pick earlier than Ben and Luc - and the results in 2014 are very impressive, making the wines at Fromm winery alongside the legendary Hatsch Kalberer. A bold and structured style with beautiful florals and breath-taking complexity.

Smells

Alluring dusky rose florals mingle with cedar, almond, cherry and exotic spices.

Tastes

Very intense and opulent in its youth. the tannins are ultra fine, caressing the sweet cherry fruited palate and leading to a long, dry finish. As with many of Fromm's wines, it's not so much about the flavours as it is about the textures, which are ethereal and subtle, revealing more with time in the cellar. This is a label to watch from one of Marlborough's most talented winemakers. With only small production every year, Pinot enthusiasts would be well advised to secure their supply early...this has all the hallmarks of a cult wine in the making. Enjoy this wine from now to 2023+
