Nobilo Sauvignon Blanc 2014
Light straw with hints of green. Herbaceous notes of freshly cut grass along with lifted pineapple, melon, passionfruit, and hintsof grapefruit. Fresh and crisp with zesty flavors of ripe tropical fruits, especially passionfruit and pineapple. The wine has flinty minerality, juicy acidity, and a generous finish.
Enjoyable on its own as an aperitif or with lemon herb chicken, summer salads, or lighter seafood dishes.
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 recognized and appraised by all markets.
