Babich Marlborough Pinot Noir

Babich Marlborough Pinot Noir

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

  • 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 11 months the wines were assessed and blended.

  • Tasting Notes: This is an elegant wine, with a lifted cherry / plum nose complemented by mushroom and forest floor aromas. The wine is of medium weight with attractive red fruits, cedar spice and thyme notes. A beautifully balanced wine with fine tannins and a lingering finish.
