Nobilo Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough Fall Harvest 2009
Pale yellow in colour with green hues and brilliant clarity. Lifted fruit characters of pineapple and grapefruit with secondary notes of green pepper and freshly cut nettle aromas. Nobilo Sauvignon Blanc a crisp and zesty backbone combines with fresh tropical fruit sweetness. Excellent weight and balance, this wine lingers on the palate in a full, refreshing finish. Enjoyable on its own as an aperitif or pairs well with seared scallops, lemon herb chicken, or light summer salads.
It's a nice New Zealand SB. It's got that classic grapefruit zing to it. A little sweeter than I expected. Drinking it after dinner of chicken, roasted potatoes (with Rosemary and sea salt), roasted acorn squash and cherry tomatoes.
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 wine made into my Top Five selections for Alternative White Wines for VIP Movies Theaters!

External Reviews for Nobilo Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough Fall Harvest
Bright and lively, with herbal pear and lime flavors that go on and on. Feels round, but it's balanced with zingy acidity. Drink now.
Fits the New Zealand stereotype to a T, boasting pungent, earthy aromas, then a burst of passion fruit and citrus on the palate. Zippy and fresh, this is a wine to gulp down over the hot summer months. No food necessary, although a bowl of moules would seem appropriate.
Tart style is like a mouthful of lime juice, with just enough apple and pear flavors to round it out. Finishes savory and refreshing. Drink now.
Bright in flavor, with an herbal jolt to the passion fruit and apple flavors, finishing with some length. Drink now.
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.
Soft and pretty, with floral overtones to the juicy apple, passion fruit and lime flavors, echoing nicely on the finish. Drink now.
Fresh and lively, with pretty pear, honey and passion fruit flavors that open up and linger on the jazzy finish. Drink now.
