Babich is making some fine wines and they have the accolades to show it.
From several vineyards positioned throughout Marlborough comes this rich, full bodied Pinot Gris which is partially barrel fermented. It has stone-fruit and spice flavours with a soft finish – medium dry in style.
The sweet, lifted aroma of proving bread appeals on the nose along with pleasant notes of white stone fruit, with spice and citrus adding to this sensory delight. Sweet Danish pastry and spicy pear tart emerge out of the succulent and sweetly fruited palate. Generous mineral flavours compliment the rich and full weight. Ginger and lemon zest add a pleasing zing to the finish

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.
