Babich ‘Winemakers Reserve’ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 28-Nov-2012
Fruit from the company's vineyards in the Wairau and Awatere valleys fermented with 8.2% in barrel to 13.0% alc. and 4.0 g/L rs. Bright, very pale straw colour, with pale green hues on rim. The bouquet is very fine, tight and refreshing with intense aromas of blackcurrants and gooseberries along with hints of nettles, fresh herbs and minerals. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, pure fruit flavours of gooseberries and blackcurrants are laced with minerally elements and are expressed with clarity. The acidity is lacy, adding energy to the palate line and the mouthfeel soft and smooth textured. A refined, elegant and lingering finish is a feature. This is a crisp, fine-featured Sauvignon Blanc with clear gooseberry flavours to match with shellfish over the next 2+ years. 18.0-/20 Nov 2012 RRP $30.00
