Babich Sauvignon Blanc 2008 (Marlborough, NZ)
Its surprising to say so, given the brands profile only a few years ago, but it feels like the Babich name has slipped out of the Australian market in recent times. Where did it go? Did they concentrate on other markets? I can’t even recall if I have ever had a Babich wine that moves me for that matter.
Anyhow, this has a green & very pale colour leading to a kiwifruit, passionfruit & musk nose. The palate is green & slightly sour, finishing with slightly dull acidity. Its a simple, dry and quite conventional Marlborough Sauv that’s definitely commercial, but not a bad drink all the same. Fairly priced too. 16.8
