Nobilo Sauvignon Blanc 2007

By Matthew Coates

image With the New Zealand terroir often described as the best in the world for growing the Sauvignon Blanc varietal, finding a cost effective wine that will oblige this reputation is of interest to many an oenophile, and when you’re being set back no more than 10 to 15 dollars , Nobilo’s 2007 Sauvignon Blanc does a pretty good job.

This wine starts with a large mouthful of unripened citrus very similar to grapefruit, followed by an earthy definitive leather undertone midway, and finishes very subtly with a crisp cleaning effect on the pallet. Pair it with grilled pork or poultry, anything not requiring tannins that is marinated with lemon or tarragon, and it also fits well with vegetarian dishes.
