Nobilo Sauvignon Blanc 2010

Yes I'm still on the hunt for Sauternes but I will have it hands this weekend. I promise, but since I haven't hunted it down yet, I decided to open a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc by Nobilo, which I almost drunk the entire bottle alone.(smile)

I first taste this wine at a wine tasting and instantly feel in love with it! I was told by a friend who accompanied me to the tasting that, "There's a wine at that table that taste like grapefruit!" (eyebrows raise) So, of course I had to make my way over to find out about this wine. Now, I tell you I was shocked when I found out it was a Sauvignon Blanc because before I was not a fan. With one taste of Nobilo's I was sold! It definitely had a nice hint of grapefruit in it and not only was I sold but so was the bottle. Here's more about Nobilo Sauvignon Blanc 2010 from Marlborough, New Zealand:

Pale yellow with brilliant clarity. Very evident aromas of pineapple, passion fruit and melon. Fresh, crisp and clean with zesty flavors of ripe tropical fruits and zingy acidity. A beautifully balanced wine with great presence and mouthfeel.

FOOD MATCH. Enjoyable on its own as an aperitif, or pairs well with any lighter seafood dish, lemon herb chicken, or summer salads.

critical acclaim:
"Vibrant and mouthwatering, with a laser beam of lemon, lime, grapefruit and apricot flavors. Hints of fresh herbs and flowers add to the complexity."

89 Points
Wine Spectator

I would also like to add that the bottle was only $9.99. Great price for a great tasting wine. This is a great summer wine and it gets two wine glasses (or 3, LOL) from me!

Happy Wine Drinking!
