This is a classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc which is consistently produced in a fuller, riper, softer style that develops well. Clean, fresh and tropical, with fruit from several vineyards situated throughout Marlborough.
The nose displays gooseberry, herbal and tropical notes. It has a delicious palate with a full fruited entry, again gooseberry layered with rock melon and a zesty long mineral / herbal finish. This is the classic Babich style that complements a variety of foods, or drinks equally well on its own.

Babich’s 2011 Sauvignon Blanc offers pronounced notes of ripe apples, pear slices and lemon peel with a whiff of hemp. Crisp and clean in the mouth, this medium bodied Sauvignon offers a decent mouthful of flavor and a medium-long apple laced finish. Drink it now to 2013.-LPB
