Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2006

Nautilus Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2006 is pale straw with green tinges and has aromas of melon, lime, gooseberry and passionfruit. The palate shows tropical fruit flavours with hints of red capsicum and nettle. The wine has a rich mid palate with good weight and texture and a typical zingy finish. Delicious now, this wine will continue to develop over the next six to twelve months.

Nautilus Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2006

"This is an utterly drinkable wine that you can trust completely. With grapes sourced form the illustrious Marlborough region, Nautilus Sauvignon Blanc has a very good pedigree. The nose is regionally expressive with ripe gooseberry and faint asparagus aromas, and the tropical palate is full and rounded. Perfectly integrated yet heightened acidity makes this a mouth watering wine." Toni Paterson MW, WINE What to drink 2008 (Aus), December 2007

"Every year when I look at the current release Sauvignon Blanc's I have a new favourite. This year a wine that has charmed me is the Nautilus Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, New Zealand. This is a particularly delecatable wine due to its expressive tropical aroma and its hint of herbaceousness. The palate is very sweet-fruited with defined and piercing flavours. It is a wine style that would be enjoyed by many and it is true of the Marlborough style. It is perfectly lovely enjoyed on its own though it also makes a great partner to fresh fish and seafood. Available from good bottle shops." Toni Paterson MW,, April & May 2007

"Nautilus makes one of my favourite sauvignon blanc's - dry and crisp with freshly cut grass, capsiscum and passionfruit flavour. Not as 'pungent' and sweaty as some, it has a lovely bright character and is immensely appealing. Great with barbecued fresh green-lipped mussels. Body: Medium - Taste: Crisp & Lively - Drink: Now until the end of 2007"  Jane Skilton, the foodtown magazine (NZ), March 2007
