Winemaker's Notes:

Color: Light yellow in color with green hues and brilliant clarity.

Aroma: A distinctive Marlborough bouquet of ripe tropical and citrus fruit.

Palate: Nobilo Sauvignon Blanc is bursting with flavors of lemon, passionfruit and melon. Crisp and zesty, the palate has excellent weight and balance, lingering in a full, refreshing finish.

"Supple, intense and streamlined, with a suave array of grapefruit, mineral, herb and guava tones. Spice tones add complexity, with generous fruit and minerals fleshing out the finish. Drink now."
-Wine Spectator

About Nobilo:

So rich in history, Nobilo wines are proudly hailed as some of New Zealand's most respected pioneering wine brands. A Croat immigrant, Nikola Nobilo, whose family history and winemaking background stretches back over 300 years to the Adriatic island of Korcula off the Dalmatian coast, led the way. The history of the company in New Zealand goes back to the early 1940's when this Croatian family, landed in New Zealand. They settled in Huapai, West Auckland situated in the North Island of New Zealand, and started planting vines in 1943. With over 300 years of European wine history, this family effectively persuaded and guided the NZ wine industry away from hybrid grape varieties and fortified wines, to a higher level of quality wine, now recognised and appraised by all markets.
