Super aromatic, as this wine usually is! Nose full of grapefruit, gooseberry and an almost deterring amount of cat pee. Crisp, lively flavors of lime, grapefruit and gooseberry. Texture is driven by acidity. Hints of wet stone, citrus peel. The huge cat pee nuance stays throughout the whole experience. That's the only downside, from this getting my usual higher score for this wine. 2/18/12

Brisk, floral style brims with pear, grapefruit and passion fruit aromas and flavors that linger effortlessly on the vibrant finish. Drink now.

On the tart side, with ripe pineapple and lively passion fruit flavors competing for attention, hinting at pea shoots on the juicy finish. Drink now.

Nobiloandrsquo;s top-of-the-line Sauvignon Blanc starts off with the fresh, pungent scent of crushed tomato leaf, then delivers ample melon and fig flavors that push the leafy characters into the background. It nicely balances weight and freshness, ending on a clean, bright note.

A rich, complex, full bodied wine with a striking bouquet of passionfruit, gooseberries and nettles. Opulent tropical fruit flavours, complemented by herbal and mineral characters lead to a persistent finish. Sophisticated and delicious.

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

Bright and generous, tangy with grapefruit and green papaya flavors that linger effectively on the bracing finish. Has plenty of style and distinctive character. Drink now.

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