Babich Classics Pinot Noir 2019
"There's enough red fruit to keep this light-bodied red together and an appealing, light touch of silky tannin on the finish." eRobertParker.com
Babich's Pinot Noir is silky, soft and concentrated - simply beautifully balanced.
Fruit for the vintage was blended from various parcels from the extensive Babich vineyards in the Marlborough region. The harvest took place at optimum ripeness and ageing in (a combination of old and new) oak barriques brought further complexity of flavour and structure to the wonderfully pure fruit.
GOLD MEDAL - China Wine & Spirits Awards 2020 90 POINTS - JamesSuckling.com, Jan 2021 "This has such floral aromas of roses and violets with light red cherries and some blue fruit. The palate has a very attractive, juicy feel with red-cherry and red-plum flavors all round. Open and juicy."
Flavours of raspberry and cherry lead the palate into some dark tarry notes with a hint of vanilla. Elegant and focused fruit.
