DECANTER MAGAZINE JANUARY 2021 - 95 Points Outstanding
Decanter's 20 top New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs from the 2020 vintage - Joint First Place!!
'Fantastic bouquet of orchard fruits and sage, apple and tropical fruit, sweet basil and a flinty leesy quality. Complex, crisp, refreshing and dry on the palate, with flavours that mirror the nose. As the wine opens up in glass the complexity begins to build, leading to a long and delicious finish'. Decanter

The Black Label Sauvignon Blanc has been developed to complement food. 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.
This award winning wine can be enjoyed with a variety of food. Serve with veal, seafood (brilliant with oysters) or a chicken dish, such as a mild chicken korma with crispy poppadums.
Aromas of blackcurrant and citrus with white florals , minty herbals and a touch of smoke. Immediate fruit attack on entry - mandarin, red apples, passionfruit that then moves through the spectrum to lime, lemon and feijoa/herbals. Tropical and textured with freshness and length.
