Babich Marlborough Pinot Noir 2017

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 10-Apr-2018
Light ruby-red colour with youthful purple hues, lighter edged. The nose is moderately deep with fresh and fragrant aromas of red cherry and raspberry fruit along with herbal nuances and a little red floral lift. This is bright and primary in expression, and unfolds some nutty oak elements with aeration. Medium-bodied, the palate is bright, vibrant and juicy with fresh fruit flavours of cherries and raspberries entwined with fragrant florals and herbal nuances. The fruit and mouthfeel is enlivened by refreshing, lacy acidity with very light tannin extraction. The fruit has good vitality and the wine carries to a juicy, aromatic finish. This is a bright, lively and juicy Pinot Noir with cherry and raspberry fruit along with floral and herbal hints. Serve with antipasto and tapas, with salmon and tuna, and poultry dishes over the next 2+ years. Fruit from the Waihopai, Wairau and Awatere Valleys fermented to 12.6% alc., with approx. 40% of the wine aged 7 months in 15% European oak. 16.5+/20 Apr 2018 RRP $24.95
