Nobilo Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

Colour: pale yellow with brilliant clarity. Aroma: aromas of tropical fruit including pineapple, passion fruit, and guava. Flinty minerality with herbal notes of nettles and freshly cut tomato plant. Palate: fresh, crisp and clean with zesty flavours of ripe tropical fruits, especially passionfruit and pineapple with subtle hints of nettle. The wine has excellent presence and mouthfeel, with balanced acidity and a generous finish. Food pairing: enjoyable on its own as an apéritif, or pairs well with any lighter seafood dish, lemon herb chicken, or summer salads.

Tropical fruits on the nose; fruit forward wine with light acidity and a touch of bitterness on a rather long finish.

Their 2012 is a bit bigger than the 2011 with a classic pungent nose of Gardenia bloom and citrus. The color is too light and needs a bit more acid. The fruit comes though nicely but the finish is a bit short. My rating -- 86

Missing the sharp citrus bite, but does have a rich fruit flavor and a crisp, refreshing body. The finish comes up short, but otherwise, a yummy wine!

Mainly lemon and green apples, other citrus on the mid palate. Nice bottle for the price. Not overly grapefruity like alot of other sauvignon blancs from New Zealand.

Varietally accurate grapefruit and herbaceous aromas. Dense and ripe, with fairly full flavors of grapefruit, fresh herbs and mint, nicely framed by ripe acids. Finishes with a flavor of grapefruit skin.

Scents of gunflint and fresh lime merge in this bracing sauvignon. Its flavors of gooseberry and herb will meld with Dungeness crab.

This wine has a slightly herbal nose, with loads of grapefruit and zesty acidity in the mouth. Completely dry but overflowing with gobs of fruit, this Sauvignon Blanc is a perfect match for lemon pepper chicken and a spinach salad.
