Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand is an integral part of the future of New Zealand wine production, and Babich Wines developed the first vineyard in New Zealand to achieve registration. With our ongoing commitment to protect the environment, through implementing sustainable practices in all our vineyards, it was a logical progression to move to the next step and investigate the benefits of an organic approach to viticulture. Our Headwaters Vineyard is farmed in compliance with organic standards.

Our Headwaters organic block is fully certified and is farmed in compliance with organic standards. 

Region:
Marlborough - Wairau Valley

Recommended Food:
This award winning wine would thrive paired with poultry or fish.

Recommended Cellaring:
Enjoyable on release will benefit from ageing of 1-10 years

Production Notes:
The fruit was harvested in excellent condition from our certified organic Headwaters Vineyard near Renwick in Marlborough’s Wairau Valley. The juice was briefly settled then fermented in a mix of new and old French oak and stainless steel vats with indigenous yeast. The wine was then allowed to undergo malolactic fermentation. After a long time on lees, to promote mouthfeel, integration and complexity, the components were blended, lightly fined and bottled early in the new year.
