Nobilo Southern Rivers Sauvignon Blanc East Coast 2014
Cool-fermented in stainless steel and bottled early to maintain the freshness and fruit. This wine is an excellent and affordable introduction to the rest of the Nobilo range, yet one of high quality.
ABOUT THE WINE MAKER
Nobilo Wines began in 1943, when Nikola Nobilo arrived in New Zealand from Croatia with a family-winemaking tradition stretching back over 300 years. Many Croatians were attracted to Marlborough because of its Mediterranean-like climate; dry summers, springs and autumns, and the majority of rain occurring in winter.
The Nobilo reputation was soon built on an innovative approach to winemaking and viticulture; Nikola was also an early champion of premium New Zealand varieties and his influence was so significant that he was awarded an OBE in 1994 for his services to the industry.
In the same year that the first commercial vines were planned for in Marlborough, Nobilo’s Winemaker Dave Edmonds was born, just across the Cook Strait in New Zealand’s capital city, Wellington.
