Nobilo Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc Regional Collection 2014

Marlborough, South Island, New ZealandThe regional collection grapes come off a mix of sites in the Awatere and Wairau vineyards in Marlborough all picked at night to preserve freshness of flavours. There's minimal skin contact before a long slow fermentation and all the blocks are kept separate to better create winemaker Dave Edmonds' signature style. Expect a fresh herbaceous, grassy lemon asparagus aromas and bright passion fruit and pineapple flavours all with a touch of stony minerality. Perfect for mussels or any variation of the grilled chicken salad.Tasted: 17 October 2014Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices: BC 18.00 specialty listing ON 15.40 AB 16.95 private wine shop MB 16.95 NS 20.00 NB 20.00 QC 19.00 Producer: Nobilo Wines LimitedDistributors: Arterra Wines Canada
