Babich ‘Winemakers’ Reserve’ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2010

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 08-Feb-2011
Fruit from the Wairau, Awatere and Brancott Valleys, stainless-steel fermented with a small portion fermented in old oak barriques to 13.0% alc. Very pale straw-green in colour, this has a subtle and restrained bouquet of tropical fruits and limes. The aromas are tight and concentrated and complexed by the faintest hint of oak spice. Dry on palate, this is a wine of finesse, with softness of mouthfeel, but weight and concentrated density of fruit. Tropical fruits with herbs and a little oak smokiness carry through the palate to the finish. Drink over the next 3 years with seafood, poultry and Mediterranean cuisine. 18.0+/20 Jan 2011 RRP $24.95
