Babich Marlborough Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 05-Jul-2016
Even, light ruby-red colour with some purple hues, paler edged. This has a fresh, up-front aromatic nose with bright dark-red berry fruit, raspberries and red cherries, along with some dark herbal detail and lifted red florals. Medium-bodied, the palate possesses bright and juicy flavours of dark red cherry and raspberry fruit melded with a layering of dark herbs. The vibrant and up-front fruit is balanced light grainy tannin extraction, with fresh acidity enlivening the fruit and mouthfeel. As the wine flows, the flavours recede and the textures lead to a dry finish with raspberry and dark herb notes. This is a bright, fresh, up-front cherry and raspberry-fruited Pinot Noir with some dark herbal notes, carried by the extraction to a dry finish. Serve with tapas and antipasto over the next 2-3 years. Marlborough fruit fermented in open vats to 13.5% alc., the wine aged several months in new and seasoned barriques. 16.0+/20 Jul 2016 RRP $25.00
