Marlborough Pinot Noir
Babich Marlborough Pinot Noir - Marlborough, New Zealand - 75cl
Babich Wines was the first New Zealand wine company to win a Gold Medal for Pinot Noir; in the early 1980s. From several vineyards located in Marlborough comes this smooth Pinot Noir, displaying delicate spice, plum, cherry and earthy flavours.
How do they achieve that? The grapes are harvested at optimum ripeness and fermented in open vats. After an extended period of maceration the various batches are drained off skins and portions put into new and old oak barriques. After 7 months the wines are assessed and blended.
