Babich ‘Winemakers’ Reserve’ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 16-Mar-2014
Fruit from the Waihopi and Awatere Valleys, fermented in tank and a small portion in French oak barriques to 13.0% alc. Bright pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues. This has a very fresh, concentrated nose of gooseberries and nettles entwined with spicy green stonefruits and subtle smokey oak and mineral notes from the barrel-fermentation. Dry and medium-bodied, soft flavours of gooseberries, nectarines and greengages are enhanced by subtle layers of spicy, smoky barrel-ferment. The mouthfeel is softly fresh with gentle, lacy acidity and a fine, textural thread leads to a dry, lingering finish. This is a gentle Sauvignon Blanc with spicy stonefruit and barrel-ferment interest. Match with Mediterranean fare over the next 2+ years. 17.5/20 Mar 2014 RRP $30.00
