Marlborough Chardonnay 2013

The 2013 Nautilus Chardonnay is pale straw in colour. The wine displays a complex range of aromas, including lemon cheesecake, white peach and brioche. The palate is well integrated, with a good depth of flavour and a refreshingly long finish. This wine has a tight mineral structure in its youth and will develop a creamy texture as it matures.

Delicious with pumpkin & goats curd ravioli, sage, nut brown butter, crisp prosciutto and pinoli pine nuts.

Nautilus Marlborough Chardonnay 2011


“Silken textured wine with a seductive peaches and cream appeal. Layered flavours of brioche, white peach, pear and hazelnut. Complete chardonnay that is an absolute pleasure to taste. Impressive intensity delivered with great subtlety. Winemaker Clive Jones is a master of the light touch.” Bob Campbell, MW. Kia Ora magazine, June 2013 (Download review.)

5 stars - "The 2011 vintage is a classic cool-climate style, with lovely poise and potential. Hand-harvested, barrel-fermented and lees-stirred, it is very elegant and complex, with rich citrus-fruit and stone-fruit flavours, a subtle seasoning of oak (22% new), slightly biscuity and buttery notes, and a tight, long finish. Already offering a lot of pleasure, it should be at its best mid-2013+." Michael Cooper Buyer's Guide to New Zealand Wines 2013, 13 November 2012
