Babich Black Label Pinot Gris 2017 750ml
Region: Marlborough Recommended Food: This Marlborough Pinot Gris is great with seafood - scallops are the perfect match. Recommended Cellaring: 0-3 years Production Notes: Specific parcels of fruit were selected for the Black Label Pinot Gris. The grapes were harvested and quickly crushed. After settling, 80% of the juice was fermented in tank at various temperatures, and with various yeast, to capture varietal character and maintain freshness. The balance, 20%, was fermented in old French oak to increase the body and complexity of the wine.

Soft and sweet fruited entry with a rich and creamy mid-palate. Mango, pear and lemon five way to a spicy lingering finish.
