Babich Family Estates ‘Individual Vineyard – Headwaters Organic’ Marlborough Pinot Noir 2014

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 23-Dec-2015
Full, dark, deep ruby-red colour with slight purple hues, a little lighter on edge. The nose is full with good depth of softly packed aromas of dark red berry and cherry fruit unfolding raspberry liqueur notes. This has richness and harmony with interwoven red liquorice and subtle dark herbal nuances adding detail. Medium-bodied, the palate features rich, sweet, bright and lively dark red berry fruit with raspberry liqueur and hints of plum and liquorice. As the wine flows, soft, supple tannins emerge to provide integrated structure and acidity. The mouthfeel is open and accessible, but with framework and vinous depth to carry the sweet fruit to a long, dry, light-flavoured finish of red berry fruit and liquorice. This is a juicy, dark raspberry fruited Pinot Noir with open structure and liveliness. Match with poultry and pork over the next 4+ years. Fruit from the ‘Headwaters’ Wairau vineyard near Renwick, given a cold soak and fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 7 months in oak barriques. Certified BioGro organic. 18.0+/20 Dec 2015 RRP $27.00
