WHAT: Babich Sauvignon Blanc 2007 (white) Rating: NNNN
WHERE: Marlborough, New Zealand
WHY: While Australia makes a lot of wine, New Zealand has made a lot of hay with its renowned Sauvie B’s. The Babich starts off with a big whiff of classic wet nettles (makes sense if you’ve ever smelled them), followed up by a mouthful of appealing citrus flavours. This gives you a blanc expression.
PRICE: 750 ml/$17.30
AVAILABILITY: At most liquor stores (product #620054)
