Mineral aromas with lemon and orange citrus and a distinct floral thread – crisp, dry finish. Juicy and fruity entry with lemon and lime driving through to a crisp finish. Mineral and spice notes linger. Nice herbals and a touch of tangerine also - a wine with density and presence.

Family Estates Organic Sauvignon Blanc

Babich developed the first vineyard to achieve sustainable registration in New Zealand.  With our ongoing commitment to protect the environment through only implementing sustainable practices in all our vineyards, it was a logical progression to move to the next step and investigate the benefits of an organic approach to viticulture.  Our Headwaters Vineyard is farmed in compliance with organic standards.

Our Headwaters organic block is fully certified and is farmed in compliance with organic standards. First made in 2009, this crisp dry Sauvignon Blanc is produced from grapes grown on the organic block in Marlborough and vinified in compliance with organic standards.

Production Notes:
Fruit from our certified organic block at Headwaters Vineyard were harvested late March and early April. The grapes were quickly crushed and pressed into stainless steel tanks where the juice was fermented at controlled temperatures with a combination of selected and indigenous yeasts to capture the intense varietal flavours. Strict organic procedures were followed at all times.
