Babich ‘Black Label’ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 10-Apr-2017
Brilliant light straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, near colourless on the rim. The nose is elegantly presented with good intensity and penetrating aromas of ripe, fragrant passionfruit melded with fresh herbs, gooseberries and nettles lifted by white florals and minerals. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has finely concentrated flavours of passionfruit, fresh herbs, blackcurrant leaf and nettles, along with minerally notes. The mouthfeel is fresh and taut with very good intensity and depth, the flavours flowing along a fine-textured, slippery line with crisp, zesty acidity driving the wine to a long, lingering finish of passionfruit and herbs. This is a tightly bound, intense and deeply flavoured Sauvignon Blanc with passionfruit, herb and minerally notes. Match with seafood and serve with Pacific Rim fare over the next 2 years. Marlborough fruit cool-fermented in stainless-steel, with a small portion in seasoned barriques to 13.0% alc. and 2.9 g/L RS. 18.0-/20 Apr 2017 RRP On-premise only
