2014. Nose: The nose presents as clean and flinty with mineral pretty floral notes and kiwifruit also.
Palate: There is a lovely purity of texture and an attractive fleshiness in the mouth. Clean, crisp acids are augmented by mineral notes and wholesome flavours notably melon and granny smith apples. Honey dew melon lingers on the finish.
Food: Great with seafood. Try with fresh oysters!
|Wine maker notes
|Babich developed the first vineyard to achieve sustainable registration in New Zealand. With our ongoing commitment to protect the environment through only implementing sustainable practices in all our vineyards, it was a logical progression to move to the next step and investigate the benefits of an organic approach to viticulture. Our Headwaters Vineyard is farmed in compliance with organic standards.
|Produced using certified organic estate grapes from the Headwaters parcel in Marlborough and vinified organically. After crushing, the fruit was fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel and bottled soon afterwards to retain freshness.
