Norm's Tasting Notes
The North Georgia Wine Advisor
2016 Nobilo Icon Sauvignon Blanc
It wasn't Coq Au Vin, since we used white wine instead of red, but our chicken had lots of garlic, butter, and wine, and made a delicious dinner to go with the Nobilo Icon Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand.
This Sauvignon Blanc has a heady aroma which is floral as well as fruity, with a fresh scent of melon being the most prevalent. The flavors swirl throughout the glass with melon, a little peach, and a lemon-grapefruit citrus presence. The finish is crisp and refreshing with a little minerality at the end. The alcohol content is 13%, and Norm's score is 90.
This is a really nice summertime wine and would pair well with seafood, or salads, as well as our chicken in wine dish.
price: $18 - $22
