Nautilus Estate Chardonnay 2020
“Fantastic depth of flavour and nutty complexity shine through with every sip of this NZ Chardonnay.”
Although there were naturally low yields of this varietal, the depth of flavour and mineral structure present was outstanding.
The wine was entirely fermented in French oak barriques (20% new, using indigenous yeeast)
This Chardonnay has a lifted nose of ripe apricots, brioche and toasted hazelnuts.
Stone fruit and honeysuckle are evident on the palate which will develop into a creamy texture as it matures.
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
