Nobilo Icon Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Marlborough, South Island, New ZealandThe Icon is the flagship of Nobilo Wines, impressively first established in 1943. The fruit comes off three select Marlborough sites: Brooklands, Southern Valleys; Gifford Creek Lane, Rapaura; and Twin Creek, Rapaura. Each block was harvested and fermented separately using a variety of yeasts. The nose and attack is a mix of flint and minerality before the tropical passionfruit kicks in along with guava, citrus and jalapeƱo. Fish tacos, grilled halibut with fruit salsa and fresh grilled asparagus all work here - real New World sauvignon blanc.Tasted: 27 June 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: NFL 27.50 NLLC AB 19.75 private wine shop ON 25.00 LCBO BC 23.99 BCLS Producer: Nobilo Wines LimitedDistributors: Arterra Wines Canada
