Babich Black Label Sauvignon Blanc


The Babich family hails from Croatia and first bought land in New Zealand in 1916.  The winery is now in its third generation.  Fruit for this wine comes from a variety of its estate-owned vineyards which are sustainable or organic.  Most of the juice for this wine is fermented in stainless steel with a small percentage in old oak.

Crafted with food in mind-weighty, ripe, tropical fruit, flavoured style, rich and rounded. Pair it with veal, seafood (oysters) or a chicken dish.
