Babich Headwaters Organic Block Sauvignon Blanc 2021
|Region||New Zealand, Marlborough, Wairau Valley|
This very young Sauvignon Blanc is lively, crisp and bright. It hails from an organically certified vineyard, Headwaters, and continues to show its credentials with its appealing apple characters and delicate floral top notes. Light-bodied yet supple and round; there's an attractive mouth-coating texture on the medium-length finish.
From a certified-organic parcel well inland, Babich's 2020 Headwaters Single Vineyard Organic Sauvignon Blanc shows more intensity than the regular bottling. Strong grapefruit notes dominate the nose, while the medium-bodied palate shows an attractively silky feel followed by a crisp, citrusy finish.
