Winemaker's Notes

Number 38 on the Wine.com 100 of 2007!

Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2007!

Josip Babich was one of the fathers of the Kiwi wine industry, planting his first vines in 1916. His three children, Joe, Peter and Maureen, control the company now, and several grandchildren are involved. Winemaker Adam Hazeldine used two Marlborough vineyards, one in Awatere Valley and the other in Waihopai Valley, to make this Sauvignon Blanc. 85,000 cases made.

Babich Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is an ideal aperitif wine, and can also be enjoyed with pasta, seafood, white meats and vegetarian dishes. Try it with a seafood and asparagus risotto.

"Serves up concentrated, fleshy flavors of grapefruit and lime juice, with intense minerality. Wet gravel and a hint of jalapeño pepper linger on the finish."

Clean and crisp, yet smooth with just the right hint of sweetness. Mellow citrus yields to light vanilla as the wine breathes in the glass and warms to room temperature. Enjoyable by itself, but won't overpower mildly seasoned seafood or poultry.
