Babich Classic 2015 White and 2014 Red Releases

Making their first wine in 1916, Babich celebrate 100 years of winemaking this year. For all that time, the name of Babich is synonymous with quality, value and dependability, and much of this is due to the influences of being family owned. The core and accessible wines form the tier labelled as ‘Classics’, these wines showcasing varietal and regional style. The fruit is sourced from the company’s vineyards in Marlborough and Hawke’s Bay, with the Henderson fruit blended in. The wines are made at either of the two Babich wineries, the Auckland winery processing around 600-800 tonnes of Henderson and Hawke’s Bay fruit, and the new Marlborough winery, commissioned in 2013, with a 4,000 tonne capacity. Here, I review a selection of the latest 2015 whites and a 2014 red.
