Babich Marlborough Pinot Noir 2013

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 16-Mar-2014
Moderately deep, light ruby-red colour, paler on edge. This has a softly full bouquet with gentle, clean, raspberry and cherry fruit aromas, along with soft red florals and a little herbal underlay. The volume grows and unfolds an array of red floral notes in the glass. Medium-bodied, light red berry fruit flavours of strawberries and cherries are lifted by soft floral elements. The palate is fresh, clean and easily accessible with modest tannin extraction and gentle linearity. Fine-grained textures emerge and lead to a light, dry and soft finish. This is a light-fruited, gentle red berried Pinot Noir with florals and a dry finish. Serve with salmon, tuna and charcuterie over the next 3 years. Marlborough fruit fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged in new and seasoned oak barriques. 16.5/20 Mar 2014 RRP $22.00
