Nobilo Icon 2011 Sauvignon Blanc reveals mineral notes and a lively acidity on the palate


Nobilo Icon 2011 Sauvignon Blanc
Marlborough, New Zealand

Sauvignon Blanc thrives on the northern coast of New Zealand's South Island, resulting in complex and refreshing white wines. This offering from Nobilo Icon features gooseberry, peach and lemon aromas that carry forward onto the palate, where they are complemented by mineral notes and a lively acidity. A full-bodied wine, it would pair well with pan-fried snapper and grilled sea bass.
