Babich Marlborough Pinot Noir 2009

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 08-Feb-2011
Fruit from Marlborough fermented in open vats to 13.5% alc. and aged 11 months in new and old oak barriques. Pale garnet-red in colour, this has a moderately deep nose of up-front, red berry fruits with a fresh and steely, minerally edge. Medium weighted, this has bright, juicy and vibrant red cherry and berry fruit flavours enlivened by elevated acidity. The tannin structure has a firmness, but the wine has suppleness, and is sufficiently fruit prominent for very good balance. A pretty Pinot Noir to drink with Asian cuisine over the next 3-4 years. 17.0+/20 Jan 2011 RRP $19.95
