Nobilo Regional Collection Sauvignon Blanc, New Zealand, 2017 (750ml)
Showing a pale yellow color, the 2017 Nobilo Sauvignon Blanc is bright, lifted tropical fruit and herbs with notes of pineapple, elderflower, cantaloupe, and citrus. On the palate, a lively acidity perfectly balances the underlying fruit sweetness. Fresh and crisp on the finish.
Enjoyable on its own as an apéritif or with lemon herb chicken, summer salads, or lighter seafood dishes.
Wilfred Wong - 89 points
COMPOSITION: The Nobilo Sauvignon Blanc has always been one of my first choices in selecting an à point example of this grape variety from the Marlborough Region of New Zealand. TASTING NOTES: This wine drinks exceedingly well. Its aromas and flavors of ripe citrus and dried herbs should pair it well with lightly-spiced roast chicken.
