WHY WE LIKE IT - The Black Label Sauvignon Blanc has been developed to complement food. They have blended a Black Label wine from Babich estate-owned vineyards which, while displaying the pungent and crisp characteristics that set Marlborough sourced fruit apart, also shows greater depth and complexity on the palate.
TASTING NOTES - Richly perfumed with mango and nectarine, mineral and lime. Sweet herbals and a hint of fresh pea out of the pod.Sweet fruits, mango and golden kiwifruit, are quickly joined by a light spice element along with quince and mandarin. A complex and mouth-watering wine.
PRODUCTION NOTES - Grapes from our Waihopai, Awatere and Wairau Valley Estates were picked, crushed and pressed at perfect ripeness. The juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks at various temperatures, and with a mix of wild and inoculated yeast to build in some textural and flavour complexity. A small percentage underwent malolactic fermentation also. After extensive tastings by the winemakers this blend was assembled, lightly fined and bottled.
PARK PLACE SOMMELIER PAIRING - Pair with flaky white fish, shellfish, grilled/roasted chicken/vegetables, light pastas & salads. Try with Grilled Salmon with a Mango Salsa.
