Babich Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2017

External Review by We Speak Wine:

Tasting Notes: Tropical fruits and lime with a touch of gun smoke. The palate is a basket of sun-ripened stone fruits and passionfruit, blackcurrant with just a touch of grapefruit. Gentle power with a dry lingering finish. Production Notes: After harvest the grapes were quickly crushed and pressed into stainless steel tanks where the juice was fermented at a range of temperatures to capture the intense varietal flavours. After extensive tasting trials by the winemakers, the wine was blended, finished and bottled. Alcohol: 13.0% TA: 6.8g/l pH: 3.11 Residual Sugar: 3.5g/l

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.

Tasting Notes: Softly perfumed with broom and tropical notes. Spicy. Well fruited entry and mid-palate, focused but lush. Long mineral spice finish. Production Notes: After harvest the grapes were quickly crushed and pressed into stainless steel tanks where the juice was fermented at controlled cool temperatures to capture the intense varietal flavours. After extensive tasting trials by the winemakers, the wine was blended, finished and bottled. Recommended Food: Screams out for seafood (think fresh oysters)!

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.
