Flavors of sauteed mushrooms, vegetables, lemongrass, very crisp with mild sweetness, this wine maintains a strong body throughout and delivers savory goodness.

I have given up on trying others...I always come home to the incredible taste and balance of this wine! Love the grapefruit aroma and taste. Crisp and citrus...great aroma and body. Excellent for this price point.

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.

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: 7.9g/lpH: 3.44Residual Sugar: 3.9g/l ** SOLD OUT **

Musk melon, lime and an intriguing minerality dominate the nose. Fresh and juicy fruit, with nettle and herbal notes take the mid palate to the finish to join agreeably with guava and lime. A very well balanced wine with a lovely medium weight.

88 Points- Wine SpectatorBright and fruity, with pear and lime flavors most prominent. Shows a peppermint edge on the silky finish.

Tasting Notes: This wine displays lifted tropical fruits with notes of lantana and capsicum. There is a passionfruit entry on the palate coupled with citrus and wild cape gooseberry notes that linger, and are quite literally mouthwatering! This is a balanced wine, with a texture that will match well with food but is equally enjoyable on its own. Awards: GOLD MEDAL - Fingers Lake International Wine Competition - May 2009 Reviews: "Good now but definitely a wine for the future. This wine has herbaceous, green grass and slightly tropical aromas that pave the way for good fruit concentration and an elegant acidity. Quite opulent and with good persistency this wine should develop beautifully in the coming months." 4 STARS
