Food Pairings for Babich Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough
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
Serves up concentrated, fleshy flavors of grapefruit and lime juice, with intense minerality. Wet gravel and a hint of jalapeño pepper linger on the finish. Drink now.
Bright and lively, with green pepper and herb character around a light core of lime and pear. Drink now.
Bright and open-textured, with very good depth to apple, grass and grapefruit flavors. Stone notes underscore the finish. Drink now.
Josip Babich was one of the fathers of the Kiwi wine industry, planting his first vines in 1916. His three children, Joe, Peter and Maureen, control the company now, and several grandchildren are involved. Winemaker Adam Hazeldine used two Marlborough vineyards, one in Awatere Valley and the other in Waihopai Valley, to make this Sauvignon Blanc.
Bright and fruity, with pear and lime flavors most prominent. Shows a peppermint edge on the silky finish. Drink now.
The 2007 Sauvignon Blanc exhibits a quintessential herbaceous nose with gooseberry and a touch of mango on the sharp, crisp, perhaps slightly raspy finish.
Fresh and lively, appealing for its zingy grapefruit flavor, hinting at peach and lime as the finish keeps zipping along. Drink now.
