Fromm Pinot Noir Village 2016
Weingut Fromm are based in the north east in Switzerland, an area called Graubunden. Surrounded by snow capped mountains these vineyards are perfectly suited to Pinot Noir, with warm days and cooling nights. Fromms are totally committed to biodynamic practises, and have a lovely garden overlooking the mountains where they grow all their natural remedies they use in the vineyards. They own 5 hectares of vineyards and the whole family is involved - Georg Fromm, the dad makes the wine, his nephew Walter looks after the vineyards and Georg’s son Marco does the sales and marketing.
Fromm’s wines are the most elegant and delicate ones of the whole bunch of wineries we imported, almost Burgundian but with just a touch more fruit ripeness. The quality is very impressive – silky smooth tannins, lovely fresh acidity and concentrated yet bright red and dark fruit aromas. This sees no new oak, which really lets the fruit and structure of the wine shine through.
