SILVER MEDAL - 2014 San Francisco International Wine Competition

"The 2013 vintage is mouthfilling and generous. Bright light lemon/green, it has fresh, very ripe, tropical fruit aromas and flavours, with hints of passionfruit, peaches and limes, excellent richness and a rounded finish. Enjoyable from the start."  4 STARS -Michael Cooper, www.michaelcooper.co.nz, August 2013

"The 2013 Sauvignon Blanc opens with gooseberry, green apple and grass notes with a touch of chalk dust. Medium-bodied with a good amount of freshness and varietal character, it finishes medium-long and with good balance." 88 POINTS -Lisa-Perrotti Brown, eRobertParker.com #209, Oct 2013

"Babich aims for a riper style of Sauvignon Blanc with more tropical fruit flavours and fleshy texture than the assertive, high acidity style favoured by other Marlborough producers. The softer character makes it attractive on its own or served with fish or seafood dishes." -Christopher Waters, Toronto Sun, 19 Feb 2014

"Lean, green grassy style, with excellent varietal lift and expression.  Good balance and length." -Winestate Magazine, Special Edition 2013

"Bright, even, pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues.  The bouquet is light, fresh and mouthwatering with aromas of gooseberry and tropical fruits, lifted with aromatic stonefruits and unfolding some pungent passionfruit and hints of green beans.  Dry to taste, light, smooth-flowing, juicy and moderately luscious flavours of gooseberries and tropical fruits show on a mellow, mildly racy palate.  The flavours are straightforward with a little esters lift, and carry through to a soft-textured finish that recedes gently.  This is a soft, smooth, upfront and gently luscious Sauvignon Blanc.  Serve as an aperitif, with antipasto or seafood over the next 18 months – 2 years."www.raymondchanwinereviews.co.nz -Raymond Chan, www.raymondchanwinereviews.co.nz, March 2014

"A classically expressed sauvignon, the attractive bouquet shows feijoa, lime zest, pineapple with gentle herbaceous notes. The palate is intense and vibrant with a lengthy crisp finish."
4.5 STARS 91 POINTS -Sam Kim, www.wineorbit.co.nz, March 2014

"Lemon, grapefruit and green apple flavors show a juicy acidity, with details of orange zest and chamomile on the finish." -Wine Spectator Magazine, May 2014

"From New Zealand’s Marlborough region, this superior sauvignon delivers concentrated flavours and a lot of complexity. The acidity is well pitched and contributes a zesty texture. It’s a great choice for oysters and other seafood, as well as for fish and chips."  -Rod Phillips, Ottawa Citizen, May 7th 2014

"Babich aims for a riper style of Sauvignon Blanc with more tropical flavours and fleshy texture that the assertive, high acidity style favoured by other Marlborough producers.  The softer character makes it attractive on its own or served with fish or seafood dishes." 4 STARS  -Chris Waters, Vine, Canada, March/April 2014 issue

"Light, fresh and agreeably tangy Sauvignon Blanc with green capsicum, guava, grapefruit and gooseberry flavours. A solid example of the Marlborough style showing good varietal character." -Bob Campbell, www.bobswinereviews.com, Dec 2013
