Babich Marlborough Pinot Noir 750ml
Forrest floor, Raspberry and dried cherries, dominate the nose with hints of mushroom, dried herbs and mint. The sweet fruited entry is joined by flavours of vanilla, cedar and dried cherries. This medium bodied wine has an attractive viscosity and fine tannin structure. The winemaker has delivered a cheerful and accessible Pinot Noir.
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
