Babich Winemakers Reserve Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2011 Vintage) says
A stylish example of gently oaked Sauvignon Blanc. Estate-grown in the Waihopai and Awatere valleys, it is mostly handled in tanks, but 10 per cent is fermented and lees-aged in French oak barriques. The 2011 is fleshy and finely textured, with strong, very ripe fruit flavours, a subtle seasoning of oak adding richness and complexity, and a dry, long finish. Best drinking mid-2012+.

A good example of gently wooded Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, with very ripe flavours and great drinkability. Grown in the Waihopai and Awatere valleys, it is mostly handled in tanks, but 10 per cent is fermented and lees-aged in French oak barriques. The 2008 vintage is enjoyable now, with good depth of ripe tropical-fruit flavours, a subtle seasoning of toasty oak and a smooth finish.

A top example of gently wooded Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, with very ripe flavours and great drinkability. Grown in the Waihopai and Awatere valleys, it is mostly handled in tanks, but 10 per cent is fermented and lees-aged in old French oak barriques. The 2006 vintage is ripely scented and full-bodied (14 per cent alcohol), with rich tropical-fruit flavours, a light seasoning of toasty oak, and a dry, rounded finish. It's a complex and delicious wine, drinking well now.
