Babich Irongate Gimblett Gravels Hawke’s Bay Cabernet/Merlot/Franc


Estate-grown in the Irongate Vineyard and matured in French oak barriques (40 per cent new in 2016), this elegant, complex, firmly structured red is made for cellaring. Still on sale, the 2016 vintage (5*) has deep, youthful colour. Fragrant and mouthfilling, it is well-structured, with strong blackcurrant, plum and spice flavours, oak complexity, good tannin backbone, and excellent cellaring potential; open 2022+.
