100% Pinot Noir blended from various parcels of fruit sourced from the extensive Babich vineyards in the Marlborough region.
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 portions put into new and old oak barriques. After several months the wines were assessed and blended.
The bouquet shows earthy dark fruits and spicy strawberries with a touch of cedar. A smooth Pinot Noir, displaying delicate spice, plum, cherry and earthy flavours. Flavours of raspberry and cherry lead the palate into some dark tarry notes with a hint of vanilla. Elegant and focused fruit.
