Icon Sauvignon Blanc is a complex, powerful wine, with excellent structure and
palate weight. Displaying distinct Marlborough characters of pineapple, grapefruit and
nettles, this wine has a smooth, viscous mouth feel with a refreshing balance of
tangy acidity and natural grape sugars.
The wine has an intensely fruity nose with hints of lime and grapefruit with a wonderfully acidity feel on the palate. Worth the buy.
The winemaker says this has flavors of "passion fruit, gooseberry and nettles. Having never tasted nettles, I can't disagree. But I also get wet saddle and compost in the bouquet and aftertaste. This wine is complex, but it is not pleasing!
