Babich Family Estates Headwaters Organic Pinot Noir Reviews
Babich developed the first vineyard to achieve sustainable registration in New Zealand. With our ongoing commitment to protect the environment through only 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.
Marlborough - Wairau Valley
This award winning Pinot Noir would go well with wild game or salmon.
Enjoyable on release will benefit from ageing of up to 5 years.
The fruit was harvested from our organic certified Headwaters Vineyard near Renwick in Marlborough’s Wairau Valley. The grapes were crushed into open top vats, held cold for a number of days then fermented with predominately "wild" yeast. A period on skins followed. The wine was then moved to oak barriques to undergo malolactic fermentation and to mature.
Residual Sugar: Dry
Vintage Awards & Reviews
"Ruby hued, this single-vineyard red is mouth-filling and sweet-fruited, with youthful, moderately concentrated cherry, plum and spice flavours, fresh acidity, and slightly savoury notes adding complexity."
