Nobilo Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough Icon Reserve 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

The usual grassy, gooseberry nose with some slight cat pee. Almost a hoppy herbaceousness and some wet stone notes as well. On the palate, good weight. Crisp, fresh acidity grabs you right away and flinty flavors with green apple, lime, apricot and honeydew. Zippy and bright with fresh flavors, ending on a bay leaf note with lingering sweet fruit. Still one of my go-to SBs. 94 pts.

Nikola Nobilo, having arrived in New Zealand from Croatia, planted his first vines and began to turn a dream into reality in 1943. Nikola was an early champion of premium New Zealand varietals.
