Babich Sauvignon Blanc

February 3, 2008
I picked up this bottle of 2006 Babich Sauvignon from Marlborough, New Zealand at MV Wine and Spirit in Madison, CT for $8.95. It had a screw cap closure and clocked in at 13.5% alcohol.

On the nose I found gooseberries, citrus, and tropical fruit. The wine smelled crisp. In the mouth the wine was dry, crisp, and acidic. It showed gooseberries and citrus.

The profile was typical for a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, but it didn't seem right. The flavors were forced and it tasted processed.

    I actually thing the Babich is pretty good given the price point. I mean, there are far better NZ sauv blancs, but you can do a lot worse for $8.95.

    Sauvignon Blanc is absolutely one of my very favorite varietals!

    I've found a lot at this price and less Chris that I would recommend before this one though....Total Wine is a good source!

    I see that Dale!

    I have to agree with you. It's been a while since I've had the Babich Sauv Blanc, but I remember not being impressed with it.
