The Details

Tasting Note Fragrant fresh peaches, white florals, with hints of honeysuckle and ripe citrus. The palate is flavoursome and fleshy with a refreshing zingy finish.
Best Enjoyed With Pancetta-wrapped scallops with saffron and herb risotto.
Treatment Fruit was machine picked, using a destemming harvester prior crushing and pressing. The racked and clarified juice was then cool fermented in a stainless steel tank using an aromatic yeast. A short period of maturation on yeast lees followed prior to bottling.

The Story

The natural beauty and mathematical precision of the nautilus shell has been our inspiration to create expressive, textural, precisely crafted wines at Nautilus Estate since 1985. Back in those days there were around 80 wineries in New Zealand. Today there are over 500, yet we remain under the same family ownership, committed to making wines from the stunningly beautiful Marlborough region of New Zealand.
