External Reviews for Babich Sauvignon Blanc
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.
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.
Lemon, grapefruit and green apple flavors show a juicy acidity, with details of orange zest and chamomile on the finish. Drink now.
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. - WineryAlcohol: 13.0%TA: 8g/lpH: 3.3Residual Sugar: 4g/l ** SOLD OUT **

Sweet and juicy tropical fruits merge with delicate floral and some herbal notes to create enticing and lifted aromas on the nose. The palate is refined with good acid and full of the rich flavours of pineapple, lime, green apple and stone fruit. An enjoyable wine with an elegant citrus and mineral finish.
Bright and lively, with green pepper and herb character around a light core of lime and pear. Drink now. 70,000 cases imported. -HS ** SOLD OUT **
