Babich Individual Vineyard Headwaters Organic Block Sauvignon Blanc 2010
The nose presents as clean and flinty with mineral pretty floral notes and kiwifruit also. There is a lovely purity of texture and an attractive fleshiness in the mouth. Clean, crisp acids are augmented by mineral notes and wholesome flavours notably melon and granny smith apples. Honey dew melon lingers on the finish.
Region: Wairau Valley, Marlborough
Winemaker: Adam Hazeldine
Recommended Cellaring: Best enjoyed while young.
Production Notes: Fruit from our certified organic block within the Headwaters Vineyard were harvested on the 5th of April. The grapes were quickly crushed and pressed into stainless steel tanks where the juice was fermented at controlled cool temperatures to capture the intense varietal flavours. Strict organic procedures where followed at all times. The wine was bottled soon after completing fermentation.
Recommended Food: Great with seafood or fish meals. Try with fresh oysters!
"From the Wairau Valley, this is an elegant expression of Sauvignon displaying currant, lime zest and a touch flinty characters on the nose. The palate is racy and taut with mouthwatering acidity and an impressively long linear finish. The wine should be brilliant with shellfish. At its best: now to 2013. 89 POINTS 4.5 STARS" » Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Oct, 2010
