Nautilus Chard Marlb 2006
Nautilus Estate produced its first wines in 1985. Today, Nautilus wines are enjoyed in over 30 markets around the world. A highly demanding viticultural focus combined with the best of modern winemaking techniques leads to wines with balance and poise. Nautilus Chardonnay is regarded as one of New Zealand’s most consistent premium quality wines. It has received regular recognition in both national and international competitions. The 2006 Nautilus Chardonnay is pale straw in colour with an aroma of melon and grapefruit supported by toasty oak. On the palate citrus flavours are integrated with cashew nut, biscuit and mealy characters derived from indigenous fermentation and less stirring. This wine has a tight mineral structure in its youth and develops a creamy texture as it matures.
Nautilus Estate wines are carefully crafted; we produce wines that are synonymous with the best in New Zealand. Modern technology and traditional techniques have been deftly combined in our state-of-the-art winemaking facilities by our talented winemaking team. The resultant wines are stylish and individual.
