Babich Pinot Noir 2017 750ml
Region: Marlborough Recommended Food: It goes well with a stir-fry of cubed lamb and eggplant, also makes a good partner for a steak and mushroom pie. Recommended Cellaring: 3-10 years Production Notes: This wine is a blend of various parcels of fruit from the extensive Babich vineyards in Marlborough. Fruit was harvested at optimum ripeness and fermented in open vats. After an extended period of maceration the various batches were drained off skins and portions put into new and old oak barriques. After 7 months the wines were assessed and blended. Technical Notes: Alcohol: 13.0% TA: 5.6g/l pH: 3.71 Residual Sugar: 0g/l Tasting Notes: Smoky dark fruit aromas with nutmeg. An early hit of strawberry and plum mix with bramble/ raspberry notes. The mid-palate introduces dried herbs and earth with a touch of caramel. Supple with good volume and persistence.
