Babich Hawke’s Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 03-Feb-2015
Bright, even straw-yellow colour with light golden hues, pale edged. The nose is fresh with tightly held and firm aromas of gooseberries, nettles and cut grass, along with fresh herb and chalky mineral notes. Dry to taste and light-bodied, the fruit flavours of gooseberries, grass and herbs are fresh and lively, but restrained in expression. The palate is soft-textured, but shows good vinosity and mouthfeel, with harmoniously balanced acidity carrying the flavours to a gentle, light finish. This is a fresh, light, gooseberry and grassy flavoured, harmoniously balanced Sauvignon Blanc. Serve as an aperitif, with salads and vegetables and Mediterranean fare over the next 2 years. Fruit from the company’s two Hawke’s Bay vineyards, cool-fermented in tank to 13.0% alc. and 3.1 g/L RS, the wine aged on lees. 16.5+/20 Jan 2015 RRP $22.00
