Wine Review: 2012 Nobilo Marlborough New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc

Nobilo Sauvignon Blanc: This is a lovely representation of what New Zealand can produce at a great price. It is delicious with lemon and gooseberry with great pith and mineral notes; fresh and crisp finishing clean and vibrant. Pair with New Zealand Chef Matt Lambert’s Shigoku Oysters.
