Nobilo Icon Sauvignon Blanc 2009
Nose: Strikingly aromatic with tropical pineapple, backed by hints of citrus zest and pink grapefruit.
Palate: Icon Sauvignon Blanc is a complex wine with excellent structure and weight. Displaying the distinct Marlborough combination of ripe tropical fruit and herbaceousness, it has a smooth sumptuous mouth feel, and a long, lingering finish.
Food Pairing: A fantastic complement to seafood dishes such as freshly prepared oysters, prawn and lemon skewers, or steamed mussels.
Back on form after the disappointing 2008, Nobilo’s Icon deftly combines hints of honey and stone fruit with a leafy overlay of herbal flavors. It’s medium bodied, with a finish that’s tinged with tobacco leaf. Drink now and over the next 6–9 months.
