Nobilo Icon Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Marlborough, South Island, New ZealandThe Nobilo Icon sauvignon is a big jump up in style and quality. The grapes are sourced out of the Awatere Valley, the Upper Wairau Valley, and Rapaura sub regions of Marlborough. There is a clear flinty/minerality throughout was is an intensely fruity white reminiscent of citrus and passion fruit. Multiple yeasts were used in the ferments to create complexity and depth of texture a perfect foundation for its jalapeƱo, and persistent tropical fruit flavours. Grilled halibut with a fruit salsa and fresh grilled asparagus would be a great match.
