This is a beautiful white that makes me think maybe I just need to find the right white instead of drinking only red. I love the nose.
nothing really stands out. It has a fruit salad type of nose mixed with the standard cat pee. but the flavors blend into a taste like any other new zealand SB. At this price point you might as well buy a $10 bottle of something similar.
medium-bodied wine with grapefruits and other tropical flavors on the nose.
Great, crisp, grassy, fruity, floral nose - you just know its going to be a classic new world sauv blanc. Crisp, grassy, but not overly so, some nice soft fruits (lemon, apple) really balance it out well. Very nice - I dont like it when its too grassy, but this was very nice.

External Reviews for Babich Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough
Fresh and fruity, this enticing white is top-heavy with appealing citrus aromas and flavors, showing a lot of peach and lime on the polished finish. Great price. Drink now.
Zesty and brimming with fruit describes this Kiwi Sauvignon Blanc - a lively mouthful of apricot, citrus, pear and fennel flavors that keep bouncing merrily through the finish. Given the price and score, it's a smart buy. Ready to drink.
Not as rich as the 2000, but still a marvelous wine, tangy and dry. Opens with a burst of lime, gooseberry and spicy-smoky green-apple aromas that are fresh and clean. It has first-class slate and lime flavors and great acidity; it is a full, round, crisp wine that's utterly refreshing. The tart, citrus finish will perfectly complement a wide array of foods.
A bit softer and rounder than most 2002s from Marlborough, but still refreshing. Its lively balance shows off the melon, lime and spice flavors, echoing nicely on the finish. Consistently a very good wine. Drink now.

Distinctively citrusy and herbal, with lime, grapefruit and mineral character adding depth to the lively, focused flavors. Drink now.
Wine Tasting NotesA pungent nose of ripe tropical fruits overlaying zesty lemon and lime greet the taster. The nicely weighted and textured palate explodes with fruit and leads into a lengthy finish of nettles and lime. This is a powerful yet balanced and refreshing wine.
