Babydolls are rare sheep, so small they barely reach your knees. Unlike traditional sheep, these happy little helpers are miniature enough to be kept on our vineyard year-round, because they can’t reach the grapes. Our tiny vineyard sheep lessen the need to mow with tractors, reducing our carbon emissions and producing lots of natural fertiliser.


Babydoll Wines are dedicated to our woolly workers who reflect our winery’s innovative thinking and commitment to doing things a bit differently.


The nose is delicate with scented peachy, floral characters. The palate is beautifully balanced with fine persistent bubbles, showing concentrated notes of pear and ripe red berry flavours with crisp, refreshing finish. Enjoy with fresh sushi and sashimi

Tasting Notes

TASTING NOTE
Bouquet:
 The nose is delicate with scented peachy, floral characters.
Palate: The palate is beautifully balanced with fine persistent bubbles, showing concentrated notes of pear and ripe red berry flavours with crisp, refreshing finish.

VINTAGE SUMMARY
Vineyard:
 The Seaview vineyard is exposed to some of the toughest growing conditions in Marlborough; high sunshine and wind, cool nights and low rainfall which produces a smaller, thicker skinned berry with intense fruit flavours.

WINEMAKING
Winemaker:
 Jeff Fyfe
Winemaking Analysis: Alc 11.5% pH 3.30 TA 6.7 RS 9.8g/l

The Pinot Gris parcels were harvested separately, pressed and cold settled for 72 hours. The clear juice was racked off and each parcel of juice was fermented separately, using selected yeast strains for Pinot Gris to enhance varietal character. A long, cool fermentation took place over four weeks. The parcels were blended with 1.5% Merlot to give the pink hue, then stabilised and filtered prior to bottling.
