Description

Originally made way back in 1986, Babich Irongate comes off some of the oldest vines on the Gimblett Gravels. The wine takes its name from the aquifer that runs some 25 metres below the vineyard and remains one of the most respected red wines in all of Hawke’s Bay.

Smells

Intriguing aromas showing cassis, plum, spice, chocolate and leather.

Tastes

Rich and full-bodied yet maintaining a delicious freshness, savoury umami notes like soy and grilled meat are the perfect counterpoint to the generous dark fruit flavours. Fine, ripe tannins and the balance of a gymnast, all signs point to a long life in the cellar. Enjoy now, but will be outstanding better between 2022 and 2030.
