Babydoll wines are sourced from New Zealand’s premier grape growing regions, Marlborough and Hawke’s Bay.
Based at the North Eastern end of New Zealand’s South Island, Marlborough is one of New Zealand’s sunniest and driest areas, providing a climate of warm days and relatively cool nights. These unique conditions allow a long, slow ripening period which in turn rewards with fruit that has a fresh, clean flavour intensity and naturally heightened acidity levels.
Marlborough has long been recognised internationally for its ability to produce a truly unique expression of Sauvignon Blanc. More recently, the region has also received attention for the ripe, fruit forward flavours of its Pinot Noir and aromatics.
Hawke’s Bay on the east coast of the North Island is New Zealand’s oldest wine region. The region has an uninterrupted winegrowing tradition stretching back to 1851. Hawke’s Bay is home to more vineyards than any New Zealand wine region except Marlborough.
The long sunshine hours in Hawke’s Bay makes it the ideal place to grow later ripening grape varieties such as Merlot, but is also renowned for white varieties such as Chardonnay. The terroir in Hawke’s Bay typically creates fruit that can be crafted into wines of great finesse and elegance.
