I could replace my morning grapefruit juice with this. Note: I actually drink orange juice in the morning, but if I drank grapefruit juice, I'd consider replacing it with this lovely wine. 92/100

You'll notice ripe apples and a nose hinting of grapefruit zest combined with floral scents. The citrus / grapefruit flavor is more apparent in the mouth, but not overwhelming, with a touch of chalkiness and minerality. This wine holds a good body with some richness. It is dry with good acidity. This wine will pair well with fish, seafood, chicken... the usual suspects.
Great Sauvignon, fresh, tasty and always welcome!
This is the best sauvingnon Blanc I've ever had, very pleasant passionfruit aromas with hints of tropical fruits. Unfortunately I can only purchase at resturants in Australia., not available through bottle shop retailers or via online purchase. Would go to extremes to get a dozen bottles. Debbie
Clear. Tropical fruit, lime. Nice complexity, crisp with lime finish. Not as acidic as 2005. Very good
A good wine for the money. Lots of citrus, clean, honest. A good summer quaff.
External Reviews for Babich Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough Black Label
Reminiscent of melon and tobacco flavors, with a clean finish. A bit softer than most Marlborough Sauvignons. Drink now.
88 Points- Wine Spectator"Bright and fruity, with pear and lime flavors most prominent. Shows a peppermint edge on the silky finish."
The 2007 Sauvignon Blanc exhibits a quintessential herbaceous nose with gooseberry and a touch of mango on the sharp, crisp, perhaps slightly raspy finish.
Winemaker Notes - The bouquet is an inviting mix of tropical, passion-fruit aromas with notes of musk and box hedge. Palate entry is luscious and lively, bursting with red current, gooseberry and passion-fruit, rounding off with a hint of capsicum. This is a fantastic example of Black Label Sauvignon that is equally enjoyable on its own and with food.
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.
Citrusy lime, grapefruit and soft melon notes intertwine with mineral and herbal nuances. The crisp, lively nature of this New Zealand white will keep you coming back for one more sip. It is the perfect complement to your favorite seafood or fish dish, and will not break the bank in the process.
Pungent, highly aromatic nose combines fresh herbs, gooseberry, white grapefruit, orange zest and honeydew. Supple, ripe and easygoing, with concentrated fruit, sound acidity and good weight in the mouth. Finishes with mouthcoating persistence. An excellent early example from this short harvest.
