Isabel Noble Sauvage Sauvignon Blanc

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
The 2002 vintage is a botrytised Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, oak-matured for 14 months. Golden, with an inviting, honeyed fragrance, it is rich, nectareous and rounded, with ripe, very non-herbaceous fruit characters and balanced acidity. Lush and lovely, it's lighter than a classic Sauternes, but out of the same mould.

Michael Cooper (2000 Vintage) says
The golden 1999 vintage has a very Sauternes-like bouquet of rich, ripe fruit and oak, leading into a lovely, substantial, richly honeyed palate, complex and refined. The 2000 was made from numerous pickings of Sauvignon Blanc at between 31 and 54 brix. Fermented over a four-month period in French oak barriques, it is golden and rich, with a hint of herbaceousness, abundant sweetness (150 grams/litre of sugar) and a strong botrytis influence. There is no 2001.
