Discover the Babich Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2023, a wine that embodies the passion and expertise of a family-owned winery. The Babich family has been producing wine in New Zealand since 1916, and their commitment to quality and sustainability is evident in every bottle.

Joe Babich, the current winemaker, has a unique approach to Sauvignon Blanc. He prefers a fuller, riper, and softer style that allows the wine to develop well over time. The latest release of the Babich Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc reflects a rising input of grapes from the company's Cowslip Valley vineyard in the Waihopai Valley, which gives less herbaceous fruit characters than its other Marlborough vineyards.

This smooth wine features strong, ripe flavors of melons and limes, moderate acidity, and a rounded, rich finish. It's a wine with great drinkability and is well-regarded all over the world. The Babich Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2023 is perfect for wine enthusiasts who appreciate a wine that is both approachable and complex.

Story and Heritage

The Babich family has been producing wine in New Zealand for over 100 years. The family's winemaking heritage began in Croatia, where Josip Babich learned the craft from his father. In 1910, Josip immigrated to New Zealand and eventually settled in Auckland, where he started producing wine. Today, the Babich family is one of New Zealand's most respected wine producers, with vineyards in Marlborough, Hawke's Bay, and Auckland.

Traditional Winemaking Process

The Babich family is committed to sustainable winemaking practices. They use natural pest control methods, minimize water usage, and recycle waste. The grapes for the Babich Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc are handpicked and gently pressed to extract the juice. The wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks at cool temperatures to preserve the fruit flavors. The wine is then aged on its lees for several months to add complexity and texture.
