With strong European roots, the Fromm winery focus on terroir and quality. They respect old European traditions, allowing the location to be expressed in their wines. Following organic and sustainable practices, they sacrifice yield to be able to produce the best fruit possible. Situated in the sunny spot of Marlborough, their vines enjoy plenty of sunshine allowing for optimum ripening of the grapes. The otherwise cool climate prolongs the ripening period, thereby enhancing the flavour and aroma concentrations.
Fromm La Strada Shiraz has 2% Viognier in the blend, a nod to the great wines of the Northern Rhone. Perfumed aromatics of boysenberry, bramble, blackberry and violets hit the nose. Subtle hints of exotic spice, ball and white pepper with smoked meats follow. These follow though on the palate which is ripe with fine tannins and balanced acidity. Complex and perfectly ripe fruit layers aid the elegant finish, devoid of any jammy characters.
Fromm La Strada Shiraz is a great match to smoked brisket or beef ribs.
