A rich, complex, full bodied wine with a striking bouquet of passionfruit, gooseberries and nettles. Opulent tropical fruit flavours, complemented by herbal and mineral characters lead to a persistent finish. Sophisticated and delicious.

Wine Enthusiast

Back on form after the disappointing 2008, Nobilo's Icon deftly combines hints of honey and stone fruit with a leafy overlay of herbal flavors. It's medium bodied, with a finish that's tinged with tobacco leaf. Drink now and over the next 6-9 months.

Score: 90. —Joe Czerwinski, September 01, 2010.

Wine Advocate

Nobilo's 2009 Icon Sauvignon Blanc practically explodes with grass and capsicum aromas plus some hemp, wet straw and touches of yuzu zest and asparagus tips. Medium bodied with a good backbone of high acid, this is well made with a long finish though it relies just a little too much on green/pyrazine characters to warrant a higher score. Drink now while it's this fresh.

Score: 87. —Lisa Perrotti-Brown, October 2010.
