Fromm Naturel Syrah 2021


Fromm’s Syrahs have always made a strong case for growing more of the variety in Marlborough. This is no exception. From their ‘Naturel’ series, it’s grown organically, with no herbicide, pesticide or systemic fungicide sprays. It has no additions other than a minimal amount of sulphur at bottling. Flavourful and dense, it’s all dark berries, cracked pepper, smoke and florals. 

Fromm was established in the 1990’s, around the same time as a lot of Marlborough stalwarts, but they’ve always marched wonderfully to the beat of their own drum. Hätsch Kalberer leads the band with a ‘quality over quantity’ approach. Organically grown fruit comes from 3 vineyards that are densely planted and close to the ground. A celebrated producer that should be even more..... celebrated.

Organic, dry grown, unfined, unfiltered, minimal added sulphites
