Nautilus Estate Chardonnay 2019
“Fantastic depth of flavour and nutty complexity shine through with every sip of this NZ Chardonnay.”
R755.00 per bottle (South Africa)
Although there were naturally low yields of this varietal, the condition of the fruit was pristine – some of the best they have harvested.
The wine was entirely fermented in French oak barriques (20% new, using indigenous yeast)
The wine has a tight mineral structure that will develop a creamy texture as it matures.
The palate has good depth and concentration with a refreshingly long finish.
While approachable in its youth, this wine will further integrate and develop for 3 to 5 years.
Vegan and sustainably farmed
