Nobilo Wines | Rock Oysters Recipe

Rock Oysters

Pairs well with Sauvignon Blanc

Nobilo Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc and oysters are one of the true marriages made in heaven! The crisp citrusy flavours found in the Nobilo Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc work superbly with lightly salty minerality of the oysters.
