Babich Wines is New Zealand’s most experienced family-owned winery. They have been proud producers of fine New Zealand wines since 1916 when Croatian immigrant Josip Babich produced his first vintage. A wine first produced in 2014 and sold exclusively to restaurants and bars. The Black Label Pinot Noir has been developed to complement the food. It is dark fruited and spicy with great persistence. Supple and fruit-forward style with lifted aromas and a spicy finish.
