Babich Family Estates Headwaters Organic Pinot Noir Reviews

“Immediately engaging with a complex and familiar bouquet; aromas of wild herb, wild flowers then red berry fruits, plenty of earthy mineral tones and barrel tones to match. On the palate – dry, spicy, fruity and totally engaging textures – abundant fine & tense tannins add poise and grip, ripe red berry fruit flavours and a juicy sweet spot mid palate pushed along by acidity and alcohol. A lovely and engaging wine with great fruit and minerality, no mistaking the oak. ” 
94 POINTS -Cameron Douglas, Master Sommelier, The Shout Hospitality Business Feb 2017

“Moderately deep, light ruby-red colour, pale on the rim.  The nose is fresh with soft aromas of red berry and cherry fruit intermixed with complexing dark herb notes at the core, along with nuances of nutty and toasty oak and hints of minerals.  Medium-bodied, the palate has fresh and vibrant, elegantly proportioned flavours of dark-red cherry and berry fruit, melded with dark herbs.  The fruit is underlined by fine-grained tannin extraction and structure, with fresh acidity providing good energy and drive.  As the wine flows, sour cherry and nutty notes emerge and carry to a slender, lingering finish.  This is an elegantly proportioned Pinot Noir with red cherry and berry flavours with subtle herbal and nutty notes on a fine, grainy-textured palate.” 
4 STARS -Raymond Chan,, April 2017

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.

Production Notes:
The fruit was harvested in excellent condition from our certified organic Headwaters Vineyard near Renwick in Marlborough’s Wairau Valley. The grapes were crushed into open top vats and after a period of cold soaking fermented with frequent plunging of the cap. After a period on skins after primary ferment the wine was moved to oak barriques to undergo malolactic fermentation and mature for 7 months. After that the wine was blended, lightly fined and bottled.
