Babich Classics Sauvignon Blanc 2020
"...fruit-driven approach that includes hints of nectarine and grapefruit. It's plump and medium-bodied yet finishes dry, crisp and clean." eRobertParker.com
Babich's Marlborough Sauvignon is a classic Marlborough Sauvignon style, with gooseberry fruit and passionfruit to the fore - a fuller, riper, softer style that develops well.
Grapes for the vintage yield from premium Marlborough vineyards, which were then fermented at a range of temperatures to capture the intense varietal flavours of this wine.
"Babich's 2019 Sauvignon Blanc barely hints at cut herbs on the nose, taking a riper, more fruit-driven approach that includes hints of nectarine and grapefruit. It's plump and medium-bodied yet finishes dry, crisp and clean." robertparker.com

Lemon blossom, lime and blackcurrant notes with a touch of guava. Wonderfully textured and sweet fruited in the mouth, with gooseberry, apple and ripe citrus fruits, juicy green notes and a gentle spice. Very long with lovely lingering passionfruit finish.
