A super-value Sauvignon from a single vineyard that is normally sold for a lot more. We have a long term deal with Babich for purchasing this wine- hence its price. Babich's Cowslip comes from a cooler site in Wairau and the resulting wine is bright and aromatic with dry, racy acidity and stony-mineral freshness. This is classy stuff for the price of ordinary Sav.

What The Critics Say

90/100 Bob Campbell MW

"Organically grown sauvignon blanc with gooseberry, lime, grapefruit, lemongrass and passionfruit flavours. A hint of sweetness balances fine, fruity acidity to give a pleasantly drying finish. 26/10/2017."

17+/20 Raymond Chan

"Brilliant, light straw-yellow colour, paler on the rim. The nose is initially a little restrained in expression with a soft heart of gooseberry fruit entwined with cut-grass, net and cool-spectrum notes, along with fresh herbs and green capsicums. This builds in depth with aeration. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has sweetly rich and vibrant fruit flavours of gooseberries along with tropical fruits and green stonefruits, and subtle notes of cool-spectrum cut-grass elements and nuances of green capsicums. The mouthfeel is lively with fresh, lacy acidity, and the wine flows easily along a very fine line, leading to a thirst-quenching, zesty finish. This is a juicy and rich, vibrant and lively Sauvignon Blanc with gooseberry and tropical fruit notes, and subtle cool-spectrum elements. Match with Pacific Rim fare over the next 2 years. Fruit from the ‘Cowslip Valley’ vineyard, Waihopai, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.43% alc. and 4.2 g/L RS, the wine aged 3 months on lees. 17.0+/20 Apr 2018 RRP $24.95." Drink 2018 - 2020
