Babich Wines Limited - East Coast Vintara Red 2012
Babich East Coast Vintara Red 2012
We have been making a red blend named Vintara for more than 60 years and this
wine has been a long-time favourite amongst the local West Auckland community.
Today’s Vintara Red plays homage to this long history with a blend made
predominantly from Pinotage sourced from the home vineyard in Henderson
Valley. It continues to be a crowd pleaser with its smooth, easy drinking style.
Can be enjoyed with pasta, or as an accompaniment to beef or lamb dishes. Try it
with wiener schnitzels topped with grilled mushrooms. Well suited to winter
The fruit is crushed at our Auckland winery and fermented at relatively high
temperatures with frequent pump-overs for tannin and colour extraction. The wine
is then pressed and blended then allowed to mature prior to bottling.
Residual Sugar: 0g/l
A spicy aroma of red fruit, vanilla and toffee apple. A smooth medium weight
palate showing sweet fruit, raspberries with a touch of earthy richness.
