May 16 is International Sauvignon Blanc Day. And there’s no better way to celebrate this quintessentially New Zealand varietal than with a perfectly chilled bottle of Nobilo.
The Sauvignon Blanc opens with aromas of pineapple and freshly cut grass. The flavors are crisp and zesty with tropical passionfruit and pineapple. The wine is flinty, balanced, and generous. And it was just awarded 89 points by Wine Spectator!
Nobilo is sourced from Marlborough, New Zealand, the area many consider the ultimate terroir for this varietal. Noted American critic George M. Taber says: “No other wine region in the world can match Marlborough, on New Zealand's South Island, which seems to be the best place in the world to grow Sauvignon Blanc grapes.”
New Zealand has the ideal combination of climate and geology to produce Sauvignon Blanc of a fine quality and character that is unmistakably Marlborough. The extremely long, warm days and cool nights allow the grapes to ripen slowly, becoming intensely flavorful with a naturally high, pleasing acidity.
