Nobilo Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough Fall Harvest 2007
This is a classic New Zealand Sauv. Blanc. Nose: cut grass and grapefruit (white or red, depending on your sensory equipment), and hints of citrus. Palate: Citrus again, plus some melon and a bit of mango or starfruit. Quick, clean finish that lets you taste the soil minerals. Interestingly, the wine tastes a bit restrained until it's paired with a mild white fish, such as sole or tilapia, prepared picata style (butter, lemon juice, and capers). This classic pairing brings out the full fruit of the wine, while the acidity cuts through the butter. Some say that this wine pairs well with any seafood, but the crabcakes I had with it the first night overpowered the wine, and brought out a metallic tang. This wine is a good value, available for $10-12.
Really enjoyed this wine! It was crisp and zesty, with a good minerality. Lovely herbaceous quality that you'd expect from a Marlborough SB. Melon and lemon on the palate. Sipped this on its own and didn't pair with food, though I'm sure it would be lovely with a white fish, or even with cheese.
Crisp and refreshing with balanced acid and slightly sweet. Fruity and earthy (or herbaceous) on the nose and mouth. A great change from California whites. Goes well with most light food, fish, or light desserts. Also see Acohn's review.
New Zealand enjoyed a particularly long, dry summer in 2008. Favourable weather patterns throughout flowering and fruit set provided good crop quantities, with drought conditions ensuring superior ripening and flavour development throughout all grape growing regions.
Great grassy wine, nice on its own or with a light meal. Excellent value.
Delicious and fruity. Simply put, it's a guava and pineapple blend with a healthy slice of lemon.
delicious, crisp, and affordable savignon blanc --- can't go wrong
