Vinification

Nobilo Icon Sauvignon Blanc is a wine of exceptional palate weight and length, with a superb balance of opulent fruit flavours, clean minerality, and mouthwatering acidity.

Grapes for the 2013 blend were selected from our vineyards in the Awatere Valley, the Upper Wairau Valley, and Rapaura subregions of Marlborough. A rigorous blind tasting process by our winemakers ensured that only fruit of exceptional intensity was accepted for inclusion in the Icon blend.

The Awatere vineyards provide flinty minerality and herbal notes, while our Upper Wairau vineyards produce a rich mouthfilling palate weight, and the Rapaura fruit provide lifted, thiol-driven top notes of passionfruit, citrus zest, and tropical aromas.

2013 was a classic cool-climate vintage. The cool weather allowed for extra hang time so generous fruit flavours and minerality, a signature hallmark for the Icon Sauvignon Blanc, were in abundance. Upon harvest, the grapes were destemmed and pressed to tank with minimal skin contact.

Each block was cool fermented separately for a prolonged period, utilising a variety of yeasts known to accentuate a complex array of aromas and flavours, and to develop the sumptuous, mouthfilling palate for which Nobilo Icon Sauvignon Blanc is renowned.
