value wine of the week: nobilo sauvignon blanc regional collection 2011

July 17th, 2012 | Posted by admin in WINE

Let me tell you about one of my all time favorite “go to” white wines.  Nobilo is a New Zealand winery specializing in Sauvignon Blanc from the Marlborough region.  Grapefruit, lemon, green apple, honeydew, and a crisp acidity typify the Marlborough style and no one draws these characteristics out of this varietal more consistently than Nobilo.

Almost every year this wine scores between 88-90 points and can be found for $8-$10.  This year it received 89 points.

This is your perfect summer time refresher.  It is very versatile.  We love it with an appetizer of sun dried tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, roasted red peppers, and basil on crusty baguettes.  It’s awesome with any white fish or garlic and oil based pastas.

Oh, and by the way Nobilo also produces a wonderful Pinot Noir.  But I’ll save that for another post.
