Nobilo Drylands Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2006

Member Review by wijnman:

Not so expensive as his big brother (nobilo icon), but also very good. The flavours 'explode' from the bottle when you open it. Perfect wine, I really love it during the summer!

This is on my short list of wines to keep around the house. Light and fruity, slightly acidic. If you are looking for a good value white and are tired of the taste of oak saturated californian and australian Chardonnay, give this a try. More intense than many west coast Sauvignon Blancs, it is reminiscent of a good Sancerre at half the price.

This wine is reasonably priced, very crisp & light, and very refreshing. Try putting frozen grapes in your glass like me..I do this with most of my dry whites.
