Babich ‘Family Estates’ ‘Individual Vineyard – Headwaters Organic’ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 19-Mar-2014
Fruit from the ‘Headwaters’ vineyard, Wairau Valley, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.5% alc. and 3 g/L RS. Very even, pale straw-yellow colour. This has a very fine, tight and elegantly penetrating nose of lifted gooseberry fruit lifted with esters and exotic florals, that unfold, revealing herbal and flinty, minerally elements. Dry to taste, ethereal flavours build in fullness, to show white stonefruits, herbs, tropical fruits and gooseberries, lifted with florals. The flavours follow a very fine, delicately textured and softly acidic line, quietly receding to a light, dry and minerally finish. This is a gently full, open, ethereally-flavoured Sauvignon Blanc with a fine, dry finish. Serve as an aperitif, with antipasto and with seafood over the next 2 years. Certified BioGro organic. 17.5+/20 Mar 2014 RRP $27.00
