Babich Reserve Label Sauvignon Blanc 2018
This marvellous Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is produced from selected grapes from Babich's Waihopai Valley vineyard. A combination of barrel and cool tank fermentation has added complexity to this intensely flavourful wine.
Ripe peppers, sweet pea, mandarin and guava mingle with more flinty notes before complexing toffee aromas completing the bouquet. The palate is powerfully rich with gooseberry, white stone fruit and displaying a savoury strength. Sweet capsicum lingers with a perception of sweetness on the dry, mineral finish.
