Babich ‘Winemakers’ Reserve’ Marlborough Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 13-Apr-2017
Dark-hearted red with a lighter edge and slight purple hues. The nose I full and well-packed with deep aromas of ripe, dark-red berry and black cherry fruit, harmoniously entwined with a subtle layering of dark herbs and dark-red florals. Medium-full bodied, the palate has gently sweet and luscious flavours of dark red berry fruit entwined with an amalgam of dark herbs and red florals. The palate features a smooth core with fine-grained tannin structure in support, with refresh, poised acidity providing energy and tension. The wine carries to a light, nuanced finish of red fruits and herbs. This is a gently rich and fresh Pinot Noir with dark-red berry fruits entwined with dark herbs and red florals on a fine-structured palate. Serve with poultry and pork over the next 4+ years. Hand-picked fruit from the ‘Cowslip Valley’ vineyard, Waihopi, fermented with a portion of whole uncrushed bunches to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 12 months in 35% new oak. 17.5+/20 Apr 2017 RRP $44.95
