Babich Marlborough Pinot Noir 2020

Mushroom and Morello cherry mingle with almond and strawberry aromas. Dried herbs add complexity to the sweet notes. Sweet dark fruits and raspberry follow on from a smooth even entry. The fresh fruits are layered with vanilla and forest floor complexity while the very fine tannins fade into a pleasing cocoa on the spicy finish.

This Marlborough Pinot Noir goes well with beef and lamb. Would make a great partner for a steak and mushroom casserole.

This Marlborough Pinot Noir is a blend of various parcels of fruit from the predominately estate owned vineyards in the Waihopai and Wairau Valleys. Fruit was fermented in open vats with a combination of wild and inoculated yeasts. After an extended period on skins, the various ferments were drained and put to oak. After 6 and a half months, the wines were assessed and blended." Winemaker's notes
