Babich Winemakers' Reserve Pinot Noir 2011
This pinot noir is well made. To generalise a bit, it fits into the box of a fairly classically styled fruit driven southern Australia/New Zealand interpretation of the pinot noir grape. Easy to drink, with above average quality and nice fruit, but it doesn't particularly stand out. Its aromatics are of strawberries, raspberries, twigs and spice. It has medium length with savoury, moreish overtones on the palate. Flavours of strawberries and raspberries carry through and are supplemented by stems and stalks. Pretty good. Good
