Wine of the Week is a taste off between the last Nobilo Sauvignon Blanc I reviewed and this Nobilo Icon collection Sauvignon Blanc.
The Nobilo Icon “represents the pinnacle of our winemaking from our ‘favorite’ vineyard in the Awatare valley of the Marlborough. The style of wine is focused on bright intensity and balance”. (www.nobilowines.com)
Tropical fruits such as passionfruit and citrus, flavors of jalapeño, herbs and a slight mineral finish.
Nobilo recommends an assortment of seafood dishes such as oysters, prawn and lemon skewers, and steamed mussels.
While I’m a firm believer that it’s hard to taste a bad Sauvignon Blanc, I would have to say that the Icon Collection was my favorite. The taste was smoother overall and better quality than the last Nobilo Sauvignon Blanc I reviewed. Again, I enjoyed both but the Icon was my preferred bottle! That being said, this bottle was about twice the price of the last one. The last was on sale for $9.99 and I’m seeing that this bottle ranges between $16-18.
