2017 Babich Sauvignon Blanc Black Label
2017 Babich Sauvignon Blanc Black Label, A wine first produced in 2005 that was exclusive to restaurants and bars. The Black Label Sauvignon Blanc has been developed to complement food. We have blended a wine from estate-owned vineyards which, while displaying the pungent and crisp characteristics that set Marlborough sourced fruit apart, shows greater depth and complexity on the palate.
James Suckling 91 points – A pure expression of intense, ripe tropical fruit in the mango and peach zone. The palate has a lot of fleshy, flavorsome tropical fruit and nicely captured freshness. Drink now. Screw cap. (Oct 2018)
We are New Zealand’s most experienced, family owned wine producer. Our long standing success is built on a history of passion, hard work, sustainability & innovation. What we do From humble beginnings in 1916 – we’re a family owned business who have worked tirelessly and passionately over the years, learning all there is to know about making the best quality wine New Zealand has to offer – and taking it to the world. This wine has come from the very best and carefully selected wine growing land in New Zealand. In pursuit of excellence, we leave no stone un-turned. Every decision we make – from the purchase of land to the labels on bottles, and everything in between – is in pursuit of being the best and most advanced in our field. We are non-compromising on quality, and are guided by our deeply engrained values and beliefs, to deliver excellence and value to our customer. Why we do it Put simply, we love wine, it is our way of life. And, from a love of wine, along with a respect and connection to the land as a means for providing – Babich Wines was born. At just 20 years of age in 1916, Josip Babich made his first New Zealand wine – under the name Babich Brothers. With a legacy of solid farming practices in place and a desire to produce only the best quality of wine – created the foundations for what is Babich Wines today.
