Tasting Notes

A warm, dark, and concentrated nose which displays spice, blueberry, and cedar - Dense, dark fruits are intricately layered with silken tannins and pleasant notes of tar and cigar box - Cassis, liquorice and black plum linger on the elegant finish.

The Patriarch is our flagship red wine, grown on our Gimblett Gravels ‘Irongate’ vineyard in Hawke’s Bay and made in honour of the company founder and New Zealand wine industry pioneer, Josip Babich. With this wine we allow ourselves complete flexibility in order to make the best we can – we are not committed to a particular variety or blend, crop levels are very restricted and it is only produced when we feel we have attained exceptional quality.

Regional info

The Hawke’s Bay region is blessed with a superb climate for viticulture – sufficiently cool to ripen grapes slowly, yet warm and sunny enough to promote optimum fruit ripening. Babich Wines was among the pioneers of the Gimblett Gravels appellation, helping position this as a premium sub-region of Hawkes Bay. In 1984 Babich was one of the first to produce wines from Gimblett Road and has made them ever since.
