Nautilus Estate Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2006
A mild winter and early spring meant the vines awoke from their winter slumber two weeks ahead of schedule and kept us nervously watching for late frosts. Thankfully no significant frost events happened and a moderate fruit set occurred. The summer was mild and the season continued to be on track for an early start - in fact it was the earliest on record with the first Sauvignon being picked on 13th March. These early Sauvignon blocks showed good ripeness with plenty of tropical flavours and good weight so we were able to harvest a couple of later blocks early to ensure we captured some components with ‘zing’. The 2006 Nautilus Sauvignon Blanc is blended from grapes sourced from the Renwick, Opawa, Kaituna and Awatere Estate Vineyards and from selected quality growers. Each of these Marlborough vineyards contributes unique aroma and flavour characters to the blend. The fruit was machine harvested at night, or in the cool of the morning, gently crushed and processed then fermented with a variety of aromatic yeast strains - the sole aim being to reflect and preserve the flavours and aromas grown in the vineyard.
