Nautilus Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2022
“Solid example of why NZ Sauvignon Blanc is some of the most sought-after in the world.”
The 2022 marks the 38th vintage for the Estate, it is a ‘serious’ style of Sauvignon Blanc, designed to complement food, not over power it. The wine displays intense lifted aromas of passionfruit and lemongrass. The palate is mouth-watering and zesty with a strong textural component. The wine was kept on the lees for 3 months to enhance the creaminess and integrate flavours. The sole aim of this wine is to reflect and preserve the flavours and aromas grown in the vineyard. This is a step-up on the Twin Islands, and if you buy both you’ll enjoy tasting them head to head.
Delicious upon release. Will improve for 3-5 years post vintage.
Vegan and sustainably farmed.
Only 120 bottles available.
