DOUBLE GOLD - NEW ZEALAND WINE OF THE YEAR - CHINA WINE AND SPIRITS AWARD 2020
A small portion of of this Sauvignon Blanc was fermented in old oak barrique for added palate weight and complexity. A very food friendly wine.
"Babich Black Label Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc was first produced in 2005. The Black Label Sauvignon Blanc has been developed to complement food. We have blended a Black Label wine from Babich estate-owned vineyards which, while displaying the pungent and crisp characteristics that set Marlborough sourced fruit apart, also shows greater depth and complexity on the palate.
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." - Babich
