Babich ‘Winemakers’ Reserve’ Marlborough Pinot Noir 2010

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 18-Oct-2011
Dark ruby-red colour with depth, and youthful purple hues. This has a rich nose of ripe dark raspberry fruits with a little jamminess, quite dense full and with a sense of opulence. Medium-full bodied, this is soft, full and packed with succulent, raspberry, dark plum jam flavours along with oak toast and shine.. This is fleshy and up-front, and very lush and supple, the tannin extraction modest, and acidity quite understated. A little alcohol heat shows, and the wine tends open and broad on the finish. Fruit from the ‘Cowslip Valley' vineyard in the Waihopai Valley, fermented with some whole bunch to 14.5% alc., the wine aged 10 months in new and seasoned French oak barriques. A soft plump and ripe Pinot Noir to match with Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine over the next 4-5 years. 17.5-/20 Oct 2011 RRP $30.00
