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!

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 Nobilorsquo;s basic sauvignon bottling. Finishes round and persistent, with a slight sweetness. Nobilorsquo;s Icon wines represent selections in the winery of the strongest lots.

A solid effort, but given the resources of the parent company, therersquo;s no reason why this couldnrsquo;t be better. Passion fruit and grapefruit aromas lead off, followed by modest peach and melon flavors that finish sternly citric and somewhat green.

Nobilorsquo;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 itrsquo;s this fresh.

Back on form after the disappointing 2008, Nobilo's Icon deftly combines hints of honey and stone fruit with a leafy overlay of herbal flavors. It's medium bodied, with a finish that's tinged with tobacco leaf.

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

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Lemon color with green hues. A rich bouquet of pineapple with nuances of nettles. Crafted from the best fruit drawn from select vineyard sites, the Icon Sauvignon Blanc is a complex, elegant wine with excellent structure and weight. Displaying the distinct Marlborough combination of ripe tropical and fresh herbal flavors, this wine has a smooth, viscous mouth feel extending into a rich and persistent finish. Pure New Zealand. Pure Nobilo.
