Aromas of smoky dark fruits with nutmeg. An early hit of strawberry and plum mix with bramble/ raspberry notes. The mid-palate introduces dried herbs and earth with a touch of caramel. Supple with good volume and persistence. It goes well with a stir-fry of cubed lamb and eggplant, also makes a good partner for a steak and mushroom pie.
From their diverse vineyards to your table, Babich wines offer a direct connection to New Zealand, the beautiful country they call home. The love of the craft. Doing things by hand. And caring for the land. They’re all ingredients of Babich's slow, careful process in an ever-changing, always-on world. They wouldn’t have it any other way.
People thought Josip Babich was crazy back in 1912. Planting vines in remote New Zealand, then patiently making wine the difficult way – with vision, thoughtfulness, ingenuity, and true craft. That hard-working spirit is something that still runs deep in their veins today; and they'll keep ‘paying it forward’ for as long as they exist.
Babich will never stop striving to delight wine drinkers and make the everyday extraordinary – so you can taste the care that goes into their wines. From grape, to glass. Every time.
