Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand is an integral part of the future of New Zealand wine production, and Babich Wines developed the first vineyard in New Zealand to achieve registration. With our ongoing commitment to protect the environment, through 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.

The fruit was harvested in excellent condition from our certified organic Headwaters Vineyard near Renwick in Marlborough’s Wairau Valley. The grapes were crushed into open top vats and after a period of cold soaking fermented with frequent plunging of the cap. After a period on skins after primary ferment the wine was moved to oak barriques to undergo malolactic fermentation and mature for 7 months. After that the wine was blended, lightly fined and bottled.

Soft and building perfume - strawberry, cherry and smoky notes. Medium weight, great volume and creamy texture. Layered red fruits and juicy acids. Mouth-watering and lingering.
