Vintage Notes; Riesling grapes were harvested at low Brix. The free run juice was fermented separately in stainless steel tanks to retain aromatic varietal character, with various different yeasts and at different temperatures. The ferments were stopped before completion to retain the level of natural sweetness that perfectly balances the acidity.

Tasting Notes; The nose is lifted with orange and lime blossom and layered with mineral notes.  The palate is finely focused and varietal, again with orange blossom, mineral/slate. Attractive aromas of orange zest, wild flowers, red apple and mineral notes greet the taster. The palate is layered and juicy with ruby grapefruit, fejoa and apple. Lovely spicy herbal notes entwined the fruit and add intrigue. This finely structured wine is off dry with a beautiful acid balance, crisp and persistent finish. Juicy with a dry finish.

Enjoy  with; Spicy food, mild cheeses

More About Babich Wines ... Soon to celebrate 100 years of family winemaking, Babich Wines are synonymous with quality New Zealand wine production, now with a portfolio of estates in Auckland, Hawkes Bay and Marlborough. Josip Babich made the journey from Dalmatia, now Croatia, aged 14 in 1910 to join his brothers near Auckland and at the tender age of 20 was bottling his first wine under the Babich Brothers label. The family tradition continues to this day with brothers Peter and Joe Babich at the helm, and Peterís son David as general manager. 

Winemaking for all estates is overseen by Adam Hazeldine, who although not a Babich, has done pretty much every job in the winery so could be classed as family! The wines include the classic range of single varietals, the Family Estates wines sourced from single vineyard sites such as the Cowslip Valley Riesling, and the Patriarch red blend, in honour of Josip Babich, made on the Gimblett Gravels Irongate vineyard in Hawkes Bay.
