Nobilo Icon Pinot Noir 2008
Pinot Noir from Marlborough, New Zealand
A rich, mouth filling Pinot Noir with balanced mixed berry fruit and subtle oak complexity. The silky tannin structure is persistent to the finish.

The fruit for this wine was sourced from Marlborough's Southern Valleys, predominantly Ballochdale in the Awatere Valley with the balance coming from the foot of the Waihopai Valley.
