Babich ‘Winemakers’ Reserve’ Pinot Noir 2009

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 08-Feb-2011
Pale garnet hued ruby red in colour, this has a rich, deep, savoury red-berry fruited nose with a little savoury reduction showing at present. On palate, this has sweetly rich, ripe red berry-fruit and plum flavours alongside savoury bramble and mushroom hints. The textures and fruit weight are features, and well-supported by soft tannins. Good acidity makes this a complete wine to enjoy with all Middle Eastern and Asian cuisine over the next 4-5 years. Based on clones 667, Abel and CL13, sourced from the company's ‘Cowslip Valley' vineyard, 7% whole cluster, open vat fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine then aged 12 months in new and seasoned French oak barriques. 17.5/20 Jan 2011 RRP $29.95
