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.

Region:

Marlborough - Wairau Valley

Recommended Food:
This award winning Pinot Noir would go well with wild game or salmon.

Recommended Cellaring:
Enjoyable on release will benefit from ageing of up to 5 years.

Production Notes:

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.

Technical Notes:

Alcohol: 13.0%
TA: 5.4g/l
pH:  3.62
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."
-Winestate Magazine March 2021 issue
