THE WESTIE VINTARA RED


Overview:

The Babich family has been making a red blend named Vintara for more than 50 years and this wine has been a long time favourite amongst the West Auckland community.

Grapes:

Pinotage, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon

Region:

North Island

Winemaker:

Adam Hazeldine

Recommended Food:

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 drinking.

Recommended Cellaring:

2–5 years

Production Notes:

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.

Tasting Notes:
A spicy nose with red fruit, vanilla and a touch of candied apple is complemented by a smooth medium weight palate showing sweet fruit, raspberries and a touch earthy richness. This is a soft red wine with great drink-ability.
