Weekly Wine – Nobilo

21 Oct


Nobilo Regional Collection Sauvignon Blanc
New Zealand
12.5% ABV
$9.99 (Delaware, USA)

This is another find in the Delaware discount liquor shop on highway 13. This too costs $16.95 in Ontario’s LCBO. But this is a much better Sauvignon Blanc than the Cupcake wine that I had. This has more of a body. It is more refined. It has a bit of an acidic aftertaste but that does not really distract from the enjoyment of the wine. This wine is mature and it has more of a presence on the palate than the other Kiwi wine. I’m referencing the Cupcake wine because I had it the day before I had this Nobilo so it is in my mind and a frame of reference. At the same price point – be it in the USA or in Canada, this one wins hands down.
