Babich Sauvignon Blanc 2007

  • Area: New Zealand, Marlborough
  • Grape: Sauvignon Blanc
  • Alcohol: 13.5%
  • Rating: Black; 88 Dilettante; 88
Description: Aromas of tropical fruits, green apple and cut grass abound on the nose. On the palate it's zippy and refreshing. Flavors of tropical fruits and herbs are accented by a bright acidity and supported by notes of crushed rocks. The finish is clean and dry. As the wine warms, bitter notes show up. Avoid this unfortunate occurrence by keeping it chilled.

Food Pairing:
oysters, clams, salads
Musical Pairing: George Gershwin
