This Babich Riesling from our Cowslip Valley Vineyard in the Waihopai Valley, Marlborough, is grown on a cool, and sometimes frost prone, site with moderately fertile silt soils overlying deep layers of free draining gravel. Good body and complex flavours on the palate are typical for Rieslings grown on this superior site.
