The fabulous 2018 vintage of the iconic Fromm La Strada Pinot Noir is for the 1st time in its 24-year history a victim of an Export Cancellation. Bound for overseas, the current chaotic international shipping and premium hospitality markets put paid to that.

Now, this outstanding 2018 vintage is being CLEARED exclusively by Fine Wine Delivery as a 1st and likely last ever Cancelled Export order at the sensational and unmissable price of $24.99 - like paying for chicken liver and being served Foie Gras.

About Fromm.
Hatsch Kalberer crafted the 1994 vintage Fromm Marlborough Pinot Noir that caused a ripple through the NZ winemaking community and set a new benchmark for NZ Pinot Noir. I tried it in 1998 and was impressed, I had the privilege to try it again ex Fromm’s cellars in 2007 as a 13-year-old Pinot, and although mature and developed, it was in superb condition. Another compelling personal Fromm experience was the 2000 vintage Fromm Clayvin Vineyard Pinot Noir of which I put a case in my cellar in 2003. I drank my last bottle in 2019 and it was stunning, beautifully rounded and savoury, and the fruit still had some sweetness.

The wine.
Alluring black cherry, blackcurrant, violets, chocolate and coffee with a hint of earthiness to it. Well-rounded with incredible diversity in its aroma characteristics.
Superbly structured with black cherry, plum and blackberry supported by a beautiful backbone of subtle toasty oak and incredibly fine tannins. The finish is long and complex, with classic Burgundian savoury notes of asphalt, leather and smoke with subtle black currant trailing off. An outstanding Burgundy like Pinot Noir drinking beautifully now with a decant, but will age gracefully through 2028+. Enjoy with lamb, Peking duck or game dishes.

Beautifully crafted, a mix of Old & New World winemaking by genius and legendary Kiwi winemaker Hatsch Kalberer. From the superb 2018 vintage this is a 1st and probably last time ever cancelled export order. This chaotic global environment has brought about the opportunity to buy the iconic La Strada Pinot Noir at an unmissable $24.99, its going to drink beyond the 10-year mark comfortably if well stored.
Enjoy, JEFF

Description

Fromm La Strada Pinot Noir is made in a decidedly Burgundian style, the tannin/acid structure and spicy/savoury complexities driving a long, rounded and full finish. This 100% certified organic Pinot Noir was hand-picked, gently destemmed and fermented on its own “wild” yeasts. Post ferment, the wine was pressed and transferred into traditional Burgundian French barrels for 14-16 months… less than 10% of the oak new. Like great red Burgundy… Fromm La Strada Pinot Noir is crafted with less new oak and retained in barrel for a little longer to build texture… enabling the sweet/savoury flavours to gel to perfection. Winemaker Hatsch Kalberer crafted the 1994 Fromm Vineyard Pinot Noir that put Marlborough and NZ Pinot Noir on the world map! Hatsch and Fromm have since made many of NZ’s finest Pinots… their focus on organic growing and pursuing ethereal wines with absolute harmony like the great red Burgundies. An export label since the 2015 vintage, this superb 2018 was bound for overseas... but current chaotic international shipping and premium hospitality markets put paid to that. Now... this outstanding 2018 vintage is being CLEARED exclusively by Fine Wine Delivery as a RARE Cancelled Export order at a sensational and unmissable price. It will age gracefully through 2028+.
