| Babich Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 750ml ( 12 Pack)|
Marlborough, New Zealand
Babich Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is an intensely aromatic Sauvignon Blanc with wonderful citrus flavors. As the wine covers the palate, flavors of peach, lime, and grapefruit emerge. This is a fantastic wine at a great price. Try it with a seafood and asparagus risotto for a truly elegant culinary experience!
The nose displays gooseberry, herbal and tropical notes. It has a delicious palate with a full fruited entry, again gooseberry layered with rock melon and a zesty long mineral / herbal finish. This is the classic Babich style that complements a variety of foods, or drinks equally well on its own.
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.
Sauvignon Blanc pairs well with Vegetables, Risotto, Shellfish, Chicken with Herbs, Goat Cheese, and Indian food.
Sauvignon Blanc is one of the great Bordeaux varietals. Traditionally, it is used to make dry, food friendly wines, but is also used to make the famed Sauternes dessert wine. Fabulous Sauvignon Blanc is being produced in New Zealand, South Africa, California, and Washington, in addition to its native France.
