Babich founded in 1916 is one of New Zealand's leading medium sized wineries. The company produces a range of premium varietal wines, sourced primarily from Hawkes Bay and Marlborough. Key brands include The Partriach, Irongate, Winemakers Reserve and Babich Varietals.
Hawkes Bay is located on the east coast of the North Island of New Zealand and produces a healthy 27 per cent of New Zealand’s production (2006). In General the cool maritime climate allows for a diverse range of wine styles, from tropical Sauvignon Blancs and elegant Chardonnays to gutsy Merlot and Cabernet blends.
Full-bodied with good chunky tannins that go down well with a rich hearty meal. You can tell these wines have seen oak by the toasty, vanilla aromas as opposed to full-on fruit. You’ll find Rioja and similar styles within this section.
