Nobilo Icon Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2014

External Review by We Speak Wine:

AROMA: The warmish 2014 vintage provided ripe kaffir lime and banana aromas that complement the classic fresh herb, lime leaf, jalapeño herbal tones. PALATE: Supremely elegant yet powerful Sauvignon Blanc with a taut, linear structure, dense concentration balanced by racy acidity and classical wet stone minerality. FOOD PAIRING: Pan-seared monkfish with fresh asparagus. FROM FOUR SPECIAL VINEYARDS: 100% Marlborough fruit from Nobilo’s four finest Sauvignon Blanc vineyards: Castle Cliffs - Awatere Valley Outstanding site by the ocean, exposed to the cool, invigorating Antarctic winds. Provided classic Awatere characters of citrus, minerality, and tomato leaf as well as pineapple, peach, and boxwood complexity. Lulworth Farm - Awatere Valley Near Ward, at the very south of the Awatere Valley, this vineyard is located on a gentle slope in rolling farmland. Produces fruit with white currant, fresh herb, and citrus flavors and elegant minerality. Bedford Estate - Upper Wairau Valley Old vines planted in 1995 result in very low yields, providing ripe tropical and guava fruit elements and a lovely mineral thread. Aberharts Road Vineyard - Lower Wairau Valley A range of vine ages provides complex passion fruit, peach, herb, citrus, and mineral driven flavors, with great richness, palate weight balance, and length. ARTISAN 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 fl avors, and to develop the sumptuous, mouthfilling palate for which Nobilo Icon Sauvignon Blanc is renowned.
