Babich Black Label 2010 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

Clear, pale gold in the glass. Clean, intense nose of ripe tropical fruits—banana, pineapple, mango—and capsicum. Dry, high acidity, medium body, dominated again by tropical fruits, along with apple and a hint of the typical green vegetal qualities, all very nicely balanced. A real kick at 14% alcohol (though the winemaker’s notes claim 13.5%), and good length. Recommended. $27 at Kitsilano Wine Cellar. See Babich Wines.
