Babich Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 22-Dec-2015
Bright, very pale straw colour with slight green hues, near colourless on the rim. The nose is very elegantly presented and tightly bound with ethereal aromas of passionfruit and gooseberries enhanced by subtle herbal notes and chalky, minerally detail. The aromatics grow in breadth and depth with aeration. Dry to taste, the palate is bright, refreshing and lively with crisp acidity enlivening the aromatic gooseberry, white floral and stonefruit flavours. Juicy passionfruit elements and mineral emerge and the mouthfeel is carried by very fine phenolic textures and crisp acid drive, leading to a long, fresh finish of gooseberries, florals and minerals. This is an elegant, lively and refreshing Sauvignon Blanc with bright, aromatic fruit and fine-textured linearity. Serve as an aperitif, seafood and with Pacific Rim fare over the next 2 years. Marlborough fruit cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.0% alc. and 3.1 g/L RS. 17.0/20 Dec 2015 RRP $22.00
