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
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.
Fresh and lively, appealing for its zingy grapefruit flavor, hinting at peach and lime as the finish keeps zipping along. Drink now.
Distinctively citrusy and herbal, with lime, grapefruit and mineral character adding depth to the lively, focused flavors. Drink now.
Solid and nicely spicy, with a baked apple vibe and refreshing notes of lemon, lime and fresh herb. Juicy on the finish. Drink now.
Bright and fruity, with pear and lime flavors most prominent. Shows a peppermint edge on the silky finish. Drink now.
Bright and lively, with green pepper and herb character around a light core of lime and pear. Drink now.
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.
