Bob Campbell "Organic pinot noir in an accessible style with plum, raspberry, fresh herbs, wood-smoke and spicy
oak flavours. A high-energy wine with obvious cellaring potential supported by a backbone of fine, drying tannins."

Bob Campbell "Organic pinot noir in an accessible style with plum, raspberry, fresh herbs, wood-smoke and spicy oak flavours. A high-energy wine with obvious cellaring potential supported by a backbone of fine, drying tannins." (2019 Vintage)

Bob Campbell "From a biodynamic vineyard in the Waihopai Valley. A richly-textured wine with ripe black-fleshed plum, earth, mixed spice and nutty oak flavours. A complex and layered wine with good depth and a lengthy finish. Should age well" (2017 Vintage)

James Suckling "This is a more open book at this point than the 2017 Clayvin vineyard pinot noir from here. A bright array of fresh blueberry and red-cherry aromas and flavors. The palate also delivers a raspberry edge with a juicy, succulent and approachable feel to the finish. Drink or hold." (2017 Vintage)

Bob Campbell "Very attractive pinot noir with bright cherry, berry and floral (red rose) flavours, together with a suggestion of anise, spice and nutty French oak. A supple, elegant wine that delivers power with subtlety. Sweet fruit on a lengthy finish" (2016 Vintage)

James Suckling "A really plush and expressive Waihopai Valley pinot noir with plenty of glazed cherry fruit and toasted spiced biscuit complexity. Earthy with a lick of herbs, too. The palate is really fleshy and offers plenty of fluffy tannins in an approachable style. Drink now." (2015 Vintage)

The Winemaker "Medium bright red colour with nice clarity that follows through on the nose and palate. This elegant, subtle and
complex wine exhibits fine aromatic spice with earthy mushroom and forest floor notes combined with distinctive Churton Pinot fruit. The finish is delicate with gentle finegrained tannin support.

A charming, seductive Pinot, the antonym of “bigger is better”, yet this wine has enough presence and underlying tension to grab your interest while being delightfully drinkable"

Campbell Mattinson ~ "..a tiny, but mighty, estate."

Jamie Goode ~ "One of Marlborough’s very best wineries......sensational wines from interesting vineyard sites, farmed organically.

Ray Chan ~ "From the very beginnings of the Fromm winery in 1992, the core philosophy of expressing terroir through single vineyard wines has never been compromised. Such a driven approach is to be admired, and Hatsch Kalberer, the Fromm winemaker has come to represent the winery’s determination and unwavering direction. The wines he has faithfully crafted from the special vineyards are deemed some of Marlborough’s finest.."

Fromm were established by Swiss winemaker Georg Fromm in 1992. All vineyards have been certified organic (BioGro NZ).

Marlborough is New Zealand's most important wine region. Situated at the northeastern tip of the South Island, this dry, sunny region produces around three-quarters of all New Zealand wine. It is particularly famous for its pungent, zesty Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. In recent years, the region's earliest Pinot Noir vines have come of age, and are now producing some first-class wines. Marlborough Pinot Noirs are lighter and fruitier than those from Otago and Martinborough.

Although some vines were planted by settlers in the 1870s, commercial scale viticulture did not begin in Marlborough until the 1970s - it conquered the world within 25 years!

Pinot Noir is the dominant red wine grape of Burgundy, now produced in wine regions all over the world, including western Germany, northern Italy, Chile, South Africa, Australia and, perhaps most notably, California, Oregon and New Zealand.

The essence of Pinot Noir wine is its aroma of strawberry and cherry (fresh red cherries in lighter wines and stewed black cherries in weightier examples), underpinned in the most complex examples by hints of forest floor. Well-built Pinot Noirs, particularly from warmer harvests, also exhibit notes of leather and violets, sometimes approaching the flavor spectrum of Syrah.
