Babich Marlborough Pinot Noir 2011

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 28-Nov-2012
Light ruby-red colour with some depth, light purple hues on edge. The bouquet is softly fresh with bright and pure aromas of dark raspberry fruit with a subtle dark herb underlay. Medium-bodied, bright primary fruit flavours of raspberries and dark cherries are subtly interwoven with oak spices. There is good acid liveliness and fine grainy tannin textures that run the line of the palate, and carry through to a light, dry, soft chalky finish along with aromatic and spicy flavours. This is a fresh and youthful Pinot Noir with bright fruit and good, fine textures that will come together over the next 3-4+ years. Serve with firm-fleshed seafood, poultry and pork. Marlborough fruit, fermented to 12.7% alc., the wine aged 7-9 months in 25% new oak. 17.0+/20 Nov 2012 RRP $20.00
