Babich Black Label Pinot Noir 2016

100% Pinot Noir harvested in excellent condition from Babich's Cowslip Valley Vineyard in the Waihopai Valley (80%) and their Headwaters Vineyard near Renwick in Marlborough’s Wairau Valley (20%).

Fruit was 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 oak barriques to undergo malolactic fermentation and mature for 10 months.

Winemaker's Comments 

Dark cherry and red fruits with gentle oak lead the nose with perfumed spice and mineral backing up. The medium weighted palate is immediately sweet fruited and then opens out revealing a generous mid-palate with cherry again. Strawberry, forest fruits, earth and savoury/herb notes can also be found. Supple and lingering.
