Product Description

Babich Marlborough Pinot Noir

Vintage Current Vintage (enquires welcome)

We were the first New Zealand company to win a Gold Medal for Pinot Noir back in the early 80's. From several vineyards positioned throughout Marlborough comes this smooth Pinot Noir displaying delicate spice, plum, cherry and earthy flavours.

Region: Marlborough

Aroma : aromas of wild strawberry and cherry. Dark cedar notes with a hint of mint and dried herbs.

Palate Ripe, medium weight and good volume with fine tannins and spicy length - finishing with dark fruits and savoury cedar

Recommended Food: It goes well with a stir-fry of cubed lamb and eggplant, also makes a good partner for a steak and mushroom pie.

Recommended Cellaring: 1-5 years

Production Notes: This wine is a blend of various parcels of fruit from the extensive Babich vineyards in Marlborough. Fruit was harvested at optimum ripeness and fermented in open vats. After an extended period of maceration the various batches were drained off skins and put into new and old oak barriques. After 10 months the wines were assessed and blended.

Technical Notes:
Alcohol: 13.5%
TA: 5.3g/l
pH: 3.6
Residual Sugar: 0g/l

Reviews

"Light ruby-red colour with some depth, light purple hues on edge.  The bouquet is softly fresh with bright and pure aromas of dark raspberry fruit with a subtle dark herb underlay.  Medium-bodied, bright primary fruit flavours of raspberries and dark cherries are subtly interwoven with oak spices.  There is good acid liveliness and fine grainy tannin textures that run the line of the palate, and carry through to a light, dry, soft chalky finish along with aromatic and spicy flavours.  This is a fresh and youthful Pinot Noir with bright fruit and good, fine textures that will come together over the next 3-4+ years.  Serve with firm-fleshed seafood, poultry and pork."

"White pepper and dried rose petal aromatics announce the crisp raspberry, cherry, loam and plum flavors in this smooth and appealing red, with spicy tobacco notes on the finish. Drink now through 2022."

"A light, fresh, clean style with pretty Pinot fruit character and a gentle manner flecked with herbs."
-The Panel, Hospitality Magazine, June 2013

"Light, supple and appealing Pinot Noir with juicy cherry and spice flavours. Reasonably light and charming wine that’s ready for drinking."
