2015 Nautilus Estate Sauvignon Blanc

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

This sav blanc out of Marlborough is more than the usual passionfruit bomb. It's quite fragrant with smells of chopped herbs, citrus, goosberries and passionfruit, whilst the palate is youthful and crisp with a talcy texture, zippy limy acidity, and a dry, refreshing finish. It would be great with some squid.

Winemaker's Notes

The 2015 Nautilus Sauvignon Blanc displays intense aromas of passionfruit skin, elderflower, and hints of honeydew melon. The palate introduces a delightful lime/citrus based mouth-watering intensity and finishes with a strong textural component.

Cellering: Delicious upon release, this wine will improve for 3-5 years post vintage

Ideal food match: Try with Snapper ceviche with chilli and lime, avocado and tomato, with coriander salsa

Alc/vol: 13.5%

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2012 Vintage) says
Sophisticated, tightly structured wine with a very fresh, lively bouquet, showing a touch of complexity. Poised and intense, with good weight, ripe melon and capsicum-like flavours and a crisp, dry finish.
May/June
WINESTATE (2010 Vintage) says
Powerful passionfruit and ripe lime aromas with lots of vibrant tropical/herbaceous flavours that linger long after the wine has gone. 3-5

WINESTATE (2009 Vintage) says
Rich wine with poise, balance and very attractive varietal fruit. "Has everything going for it," enthused one judge - fresh, lifted gooseberries, cut grass and nutty notes.

WINESTATE (2008 Vintage) says
Some seaweed/iodine notes on the nose, and a sweet/sour impression on the palate. Has balance and length.
