Nautilus Marlborough Chardonnay
Established in 1985, Nautilus prides itself on producing premium wines from grapes sourced from its Renwick, Opawa and Awatere River Estate Vineyards and from a team of dedicated and specialist growers. The Nautilus Chardonnay is pale straw in colour with a lifted aroma of tropical fruit and melon supported by toasty oak. On the palate grapefruit/citrus ﬂ avours are integrated with nutty/biscuit characters derived from indigenous fermentation and lees stirring. This wine has a tight mineral structure in its youth and develops a creamy texture as it matures.
The bouquet is shy and youthful with citrus, stone fruit and subtle flinty notes. It’s taut and finely textured on the palate with a long, intricate finish. Discreet, pure and lingering.
