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."

"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."

"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"
