External Reviews for Babich Sauvignon Blanc
Lemon, grapefruit and green apple flavors show a juicy acidity, with details of orange zest and chamomile on the finish. Drink now.
The 2013 Sauvignon Blanc opens with gooseberry, green apple and grass notes with a touch of chalk dust. Medium-bodied with a good amount of freshness and varietal character, it finishes medium-long and with good balance. Drink it now to 2015.
Bright lifted herbals, fennel, blackcurrant and lemon. Fruit salad entry over a base of apple, nice herbals again with mineral and citrus on the finish. Creamy mid-palate. - WineryAlcohol: 13.0%TA: 7.4g/lpH: 3.45Residual Sugar: 3.9g/l
The aroma of lantana and wild herbs combines with tropical fruits and green apple. The palate is exuberant and intense -fruit salad, nettles and fresh herbs burst into existence and continue through the length of the palate, joined at the end by lime/citrus and mineral notes. A powerful and lengthy Sauvignon.
