The founders of Babich were visionaries who succeeded in bringing the wines of New Zealand to the world. A collation of fruit from several splendid Marlborough vineyards is assembled into a rich, full bodied Pinot Gris, offering brisk vitality and exquisite style. Partially barrel fermented for richness and complexity, Babich exhibits ripe stonefruit and spice flavours before a soft, medium dry finish. The Marlborough white of choice to accompany the freshest fish, a match to crumbed and shallow fried snapper fillets.
Marlborough is renowned for Pinot Gris, as the free draining, alluvial loams over gravelly sub soils in the Wairau, Waihopai and Awatere valleys provide ideal growing conditions. Parcels of Pinot Gris are harvested as grapes achieve full physiological ripeness. Vineyards with heavier soils add weight to the wine, lighter soils contribute bright varietal aromatics. Most components are vinified in fermenters at various temperatures through a selection of yeasts to enhance character and build interest. The balance is vinified in a selection of seasoned French oak barrels while being treated to a course of lees stirring which builds body and complexity in the finished wine.
TASTING NOTES
A light, peach straw hue. The sweet, lifted aroma of proving bread on the nose, along with pleasant notes of white stone fruit, spices and citrus adding to the sensory delight. Sweet danish pastry and spicy pear tart emerge out of the succulent, sweetly fruited palate. Generous mineral flavours compliment the rich and full weight. Ginger and lemon zest add a pleasing zing to the finish.
