We were the first New Zealand company to win a Gold Medal for Pinot Noir back in the early 80's. From several vineyards positioned throughout Marlborough comes this smooth Pinot Noir displaying delicate spice, plum, cherry and earthy flavours.

Aromas of wild strawberry and cherry. Dark cedar notes with a hint of mint and dried herbs. Ripe, medium weight and good volume with fine tannins and spicy length - finishing with dark fruits and savoury cedar.

This wine is a blend of various parcels of fruit from the extensive Babich vineyards in Marlborough. Fruit was harvested at optimum ripeness and fermented in open vats. After an extended period of maceration the various batches were drained off skins and put into new and old oak barriques. After several months the wines were assessed and blended.

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 aubergine, also makes a good partner for a steak and mushroom pie.
