Grassy and zesty, but not so much acid that you feel like you are having alcoholic limeade. A lovely bit of citrus, a nice choice if your movies have a summer salad or are experimenting with Sushi! This made it into my Top Five Wines to include as Alternative White Blend for VIP Movie Theaters!

Crisp and just right for a warm summer day! Not too sweet or dry. Very glad I tried this one!

Lovely, smooth wine with a full round finish - perfectly complimentary to the sweetness of scallops or any seafood.

Pale green-tinged color. Flinty, leesy nose hints at creamy tropical fruits. Fat and ripe but kept fresh by good acidity. This offers much more palate impact than Nobilo's basic sauvignon bottling. Finishes round and persistent, with a slight sweetness. Nobilo's Icon wines represent selections in the winery of the strongest lots.

On the tart side, with ripe pineapple and lively passion fruit flavors competing for attention, hinting at pea shoots on the juicy finish. Drink now.

Strongly herbal, with green pepper overtones to the pineapple and tropical fruit flavors. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

Offers a successful mix of fresh, tangy peach, mango and tangerine flavors, with fresh herbal details. Smooth and round, with a wonderfully vibrant acidity. Drink now.

Brisk, floral style brims with pear, grapefruit and passion fruit aromas and flavors that linger effortlessly on the vibrant finish. Drink now.

Back on form after the disappointing 2008, Nobilorsquo;s Icon deftly combines hints of honey and stone fruit with a leafy overlay of herbal flavors. Itrsquo;s medium bodied, with a finish thatrsquo;s tinged with tobacco leaf.

Nobilo's 2009 Icon Sauvignon Blanc practically explodes with grass and capsicum aromas plus some hemp, wet straw and touches of yuzu zest and asparagus tips. Medium bodied with a good backbone of high acid, this is well made with a long finish though it relies just a little too much on green/pyrazine characters to warrant a higher score. Drink now while it's this fresh.
