2015 Nobilo Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc
Here’s just a quick mid-week review on a wine that is a summer staple in our household. It’s only $7.99 and when the Atlanta heat kicks into gear, it’s time to go to Marlborough to cool down. I know this isn’t the highest quality wine in the world, but for a “time and place wine,” which in this case means hot weather and good friends, this wine just always hits the spot as it does right now.
Similar notes to the 2014 vintage of this wine. Pours a super light yellow, grassy, grapefruit, tart nose with similar flavor and a mega dose of acidity as these wines tend to deliver. Flavors of apricot, grapefruit, lemon, tons of tart, sour. Super refreshing from start to finish. For what this wine aims to be, it really is spot on. Don’t think too much, drink outside, and enjoy.
