The Black Label Pinot Noir is 100% estate grown and has been developed to complement food. It is a dark fruited and spicy wine with great persistence.

A spicy hit with dark sweet undertones. The palate has sweet fruits and dark earthy elements concentrated and focused with viscosity and volume. Cocoa lingers on.

The fruit was harvested in excellent condition from our Cowslip Valley Vineyard in the Waihopai Valley (80%) and our Headwaters Vineyard near Renwick in Marlborough’s Wairau Valley (20%). The grapes were crushed to open top vats and, following a period of cold soaking, fermented with frequent plunging of the cap. After a period on skins post primary ferment the wine was moved to 225L oak barriques to undergo malolactic fermentation and mature for 10 months. After that the wine was blended, lightly fined and bottled in mid March.

Soon to celebrate 100 years of family winemaking, Babich Wines are synonymous with quality New Zealand wine production, now with a portfolio of estates in Auckland, Hawkes Bay and Marlborough. Josip Babich made the journey from Dalmatia, now Croatia, aged 14 in 1910 to join his brothers near Auckland and at the tender age of 20 was bottling his first wine under the Babich Brothers label. The family tradition continues to this day with brothers Peter and Joe Babich at the helm, and Peter’s son David as general manager.

Winemaking for all estates is overseen by Adam Hazeldine, who although not a Babich, has done pretty much every job in the winery so could be classed as family! The wines include the classic range of single varietals, the Family Estates wines sourced from single vineyard sites such as the Cowslip Valley Riesling, and the Patriarch red blend, in honour of Josip Babich, made on the Gimblett Gravels Irongate vineyard in Hawkes Bay.

It goes well with a stir-fry of cubed lamb and eggplant, also makes a good partner for a steak and mushroom pie.
