Babich ‘Winemakers’ Reserve’ Marlborough Pinot Noir 2014

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 05-Jul-2016
This has a full, dark ruby-red colour with black hues and some garnet on the rim. The bouquet is firmly concentrated with aromas of savoury dark-red betty fruits entwined with dark herbs and complexing savoury whole bunch stalk and stem elements, along with nuances of undergrowth and nutty oak. Medium-bodied, the palate possesses a concentrated core of dark red berry fruit harmoniously melded with layers of dark herbs and whole bunch stalk elements. The fruit is subtly sweet and follows a concentrated and well-extracted line leading to a long, savoury dark red fruited and dark herbed finish with undergrowth complexities. This is a harmoniously concentrated Pinot Noir with firm dark fruit, herbs and whole bunch complexities and some undergrowth complexities. Fruit from the ‘Cowslip’ vineyard, Waihopi, hand-picked and fermented with a small portion of whole bunches to 13.5% alc., the wine aged in new and seasoned French oak barriques.. 17.5/20 Jul 2016 RRP $35.00
