Winery Notes: "The fruit of our two Marlborough vineyards were blended to produce this rich and flavorsome wine: Cowslip Valley (Waihopai), providing full, soft and luscious fruit weight, and Wakefield Downs (Awatere), bringing strength and focus." A juicy white, with bright acidity and lean lemon, lime and green apple flavors. A note of fresh thyme graces the finish. â€”MaryAnn Worobiec
|Wine maker notes
|This is a classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc which is consistently produced in a fuller, riper, softer style that develops well. Clean, fresh and tropical, with fruit from several vineyards situated throughout Marlborough.

Why we do it
Put simply, we love wine, it is our way of life. And, from a love of wine, along with a respect and connection to the land as a means for providing - Babich Wines was born. At just 20 years of age in 1916, Josip Babich made his first New Zealand wine - under the name Babich Brothers. With a legacy of solid farming practices in place and a desire to produce only the best quality of wine - created the foundations for what is Babich Wines today. Three generations of wine lovers, who all want to deliver to the consumer the best possible product, representing the best possible value, for every occasion.
