Happy Hour: 2009 Babich Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

Last Monday, I went out for dinner at a nearby restaurant. As luck would have it, all the wines were half off, so we asked our server to pick something for us. Her choice? A 2009 Babich Sauvignon Blanc, from the Marlborough Region of New Zealand.

I was surprised anything so young could be this good. It smelled like passionfruit, with a hint of guava, and on first sip, was slightly effervescent yet creamy at the same time. It ended with a tart finish. As time passed, notes of pear seemed to take over on the nose and the front of the palate.

I love wines that evolve right before my eyes as I'm drinking them. Have you ever had a similar experience?

I live in NZ and love our savs, they so affordable and as Molly says, super drinkable.

I love all the Marlborough Sav Blancs — they all taste similar, price is usually great and they're super drinkable (that last one for better or for worse). They're my goto when looking for an inexpensive white to bring to a dinner party. Always a crowd pleaser!
