    BACKGROUND:
    Icon is the flagship of Nobilo Wines, one of New Zealand’s pioneer estates, established by the Nobilo family in 1943.

    From Five Special Vineyards:
    We sourced the fruit for this wine from some of Nobilo’s finest Sauvignon Blanc vineyards located throughout the Marlborough growing region.
    Pickering – Central Wairau
    Jones – Rapaura
    Trueman – Upper Wairau
    Hay – Waihopai
    Castle Cliffs – Awatere

    The Awatere vineyards provide flinty minerality and herbal notes, while our Wairau vineyards produce a rich, mouthfilling palate weight. The Rapaura fruit provide lifted, thiol-driven top notes of passion fruit, citrus zest, and tropical aromas, and Waihopai’s cool soils brought intense, juicy fruit flavor.

    Winemaking:
    Each vineyard block was harvested and fermented separately in small tanks, then kept separate throughout. Fermentation was cool for a prolonged period, utilizing a variety of yeasts known to accentuate a complex array of aromas and flavors, and to develop the sumptuous, mouthfilling palate for which Nobilo Icon Sauvignon Blanc is renowned.

    AROMA:
    Complex aromatics ranging from citrus and ripe, tropical passion fruit and melon to wet stone.

    PALATE:
    Long and elegant with a noticeable minerality, great fruit sweetness, and juicy, balanced acidity.

    Food Pairing:
    Pan-seared monkfish with fresh asparagus.

    WORLD WINE AWARDS 2018 (SILVER): Varietal and vibrant with citrus, red apple and under-ripe tropical characters. Quite classical with impressive weight and a pleasing rich texture. - Decanter Magazine 90 Points

    Pungent, green and peppery, with a vibrant mouthful of acidity to the lime and grapefruit core. A hint of minerality lingers. Drink now. 21,166 cases made. -MW - Wine Spectator Magazine 88 Points
