Babich 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.
This Babich wine 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.
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.
