Food Pairings for Nobilo Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough Icon Reserve
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
External Reviews for Nobilo Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough Icon Reserve
Nobilo's 2009 Icon Sauvignon Blanc practically explodes with grass and capsicum aromas plus some hemp, wet straw and touches of yuzu zest and asparagus tips. Medium bodied with a good backbone of high acid, this is well made with a long finish though it relies just a little too much on green/pyrazine characters to warrant a higher score. Drink now while it's this fresh.
Strongly herbal, with green pepper overtones to the pineapple and tropical fruit flavors. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
Back on form after the disappointing 2008, Nobilo's Icon deftly combines hints of honey and stone fruit with a leafy overlay of herbal flavors. It's medium bodied, with a finish that's tinged with tobacco leaf.
Offers a successful mix of fresh, tangy peach, mango and tangerine flavors, with fresh herbal details. Smooth and round, with a wonderfully vibrant acidity. Drink now.
Nobilorsquo;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 brilliant burst of lime, grapefruit and green apple rides easily on a racy, acidity-fueled texture, persisting into the long, vibrant finish with hints of wet stone and citrus peel. Drink now.
A solid effort, but given the resources of the parent company, there's no reason why this couldn't be better. Passion fruit and grapefruit aromas lead off, followed by modest peach and melon flavors that finish sternly citric and somewhat green.
Light straw, with delicate green hues. Bursting with pineapple and nettle, underpinned by citrus zest and ripe pink grapefruit notes. palate Rich and full bodied, the wine displays layered complexity of ripe tropical fruit flavors, herbal notes, and clean minerality, with a finish that is extremely generous and persistent.
