GOLD MEDAL | Dish Chardonnay Tasting Panel 2021
Nautilus has developed a reputation as one of the finest Marlborough producers and their Chardonnay never fails to impress. Powerful aromas showing citrus and white peach with a touch of nutty complexes that follow through onto the palate with good depth and a long finish. A tight minerality gives this wine elegance and is truly one to impress.
The winery writes "The 2020 Nautilus Chardonnay is straw coloured with a lifted nose of ripe apricots, brioche and toasted hazelnuts with a hint of flinty complexity. The palate displays stone fruits and honeysuckle along with a nutty complexity from the natural ferments. The palate has good depth and concentration with a refreshingly long finish. This wine has a tight mineral structure and will develop a creamy texture as it matures."
This wine makes me feel happy, from the beautiful aroma to the taste. This takes me to a happy place.
