Wine of the Week NZ

Fromm Clayvin Pinot Noir 2016, Marlborough, NZD $75

From Marlborough’s most famous hillside vineyard. Beautifully pure pinot noir with floral, rose petal, cherry and raspberry flavours plus a seasoning of spice and nutty oak. An impressive expression of place. Can be appreciated now but will develop even greater complexity with bottle age. Long and linear. (Cork)
