- NOBILO 2010 SAUVIGNON BLANC MARLBOROUGH:
I love New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs, particularly this bargain-priced version from a producer who’s consistently good. It’s like a lemon drop in its lovely array of zippy citrus flavors, nicely offset by nuances of sweet Meyer lemon, herbs, and floral notes. It’s a delicious aperitif, but it’s best at the table paired with shellfish in lemony dressing, green chile enchiladas, or spicy Thai curries. Widely available, it’s at BevMo! and grocers, but the best buy is at Trader Joe’s: only $10.49.
