Winemaker's Notes

The bouquet is an inviting mix of tropical, passionfruit aromas with notes of musk and box hedge. Palate entry is luscious and lively, bursting with red current, gooseberry and passionfruit, rounding off with a hint of capsicum. This is a fantastic example of Black Label Sauvignon that is equally enjoyable on its own and with food.

Critical Acclaim

"Babich's top Sauvignon is a big step up in quality, featuring more weight and intensity than its regular bottling. Tropical--think passion fruit--flavors are accented by grassy notes, with grapefruit notes forming the core. Drink now. "
89 Points

"Very tangy, with a lively burst of grapefruit, lime and oyster shell notes. Lemon, thyme and grass flavors linger on the finish. Drink now. 5,000 cases imported."
88 Points
