Babich The Patriarch
Babich's flagship red - all class!

Babich The Patriarch

2013, Hawkes Bay New Zealand

Beef/Steak Venison Lamb
  • Babich's flagship red in honour of Josip Babich (founder and first bloke to release a wine under the family name back in 1916)
  • Dark, rich red blend of Cab Sauv, Malbec and Merlot
  • No.1 NZ Bordeaux blend - Cuisine magazine (2016)
  • From the legendary 2013 vintage - this will cellar for up to 15 years!

Head of the family, leader of the tribe, the big MacDaddy, call him what you will but Babich Wines wouldn't be around if it wasn't for Josip Babich.

Croat born Josip moved to NZ in 1910 and by 1916 he was selling the first Babich wine (labelled "Babich Brothers"). Almost 100 years on and the Babich name is still going strong.

The modern day Babich bunch have dedicated their flagship label to Josip and called it their "Patriarch". This is a label only released in the very best of vintages, from low yielding vines for maximum quality, entirely hand-picked fruit from their "Irongate" Gimblett Gravels vineyard, hand plunged, the works.

From that amazing 2013 Hawke's Bay vintage that left winemakers and critics running out of superlatives (we think "vintage of a lifetime" has a nice ring to it). This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (49%), Malbec (27%) and Merlot (24%) is a dark, rich red that has some serious cellaring potential of around 15 years or so! A seriously special wine.

The lowdown: 12.5% alc / 750ml / Cork
