Babich Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

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.

  • Region: Marlborough.

  • Recommended Food: Great with seafood or fish meals. Try with fresh oysters!

  • Recommended Cellaring: Best enjoyed while young.

  • Production Notes: After harvest the grapes were quickly crushed and pressed into stainless steel tanks where the juice was fermented at controlled cool temperatures to capture the intense varietal flavours. The wine was then blended and bottled.

  • Tasting Notes: This wine has a bouquet that is bursting with passionfruit, gooseberry and red current. The palate is rich, sweet fruited and complex with layers of guava, passionfruit and gooseberry. The acid/fruit balance is excellent with a lovely herbal flinty character and a lingering perfume on the finish. This is a reason why Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is so famous. Enjoy!
