Nobilo Icon Collection Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2016

External Review by We Speak Wine:

BACKGROUND: Icon is the flagship of Nobilo Wines, one of New Zealand’s pioneer estates, established by the Nobilo family in 1943. From Five Special Vineyards: We sourced the fruit for this wine from some of Nobilo’s finest Sauvignon Blanc vineyards located throughout the Marlborough growing region. Pickering – Central Wairau Jones – Rapaura Trueman – Upper Wairau Hay – Waihopai Castle Cliffs – Awatere The Awatere vineyards provide flinty minerality and herbal notes, while our Wairau vineyards produce a rich, mouthfilling palate weight. The Rapaura fruit provide lifted, thiol-driven top notes of passion fruit, citrus zest, and tropical aromas, and Waihopai’s cool soils brought intense, juicy fruit flavor. Winemaking: Each vineyard block was harvested and fermented separately in small tanks, then kept separate throughout. Fermentation was cool for a prolonged period, utilizing a variety of yeasts known to accentuate a complex array of aromas and flavors, and to develop the sumptuous, mouthfilling palate for which Nobilo Icon Sauvignon Blanc is renowned. AROMA: Complex aromatics ranging from citrus and ripe, tropical passion fruit and melon to wet stone. PALATE: Long and elegant with a noticeable minerality, great fruit sweetness, and juicy, balanced acidity. Food Pairing: Pan-seared monkfish with fresh asparagus. TA: 7.0g/L pH: 3.28 RS: 2.3g/L Alcohol: 13%
