Description

Is it any surprise that a wine estate so famous for their traditional method sparkling wine should have also produce such an iconic, lees-driven Chardonnay? Nautilus Estate is now one of the top 3 Chardonnays in Marlborough, always punching well above its weight. We recently tasted every vintage back to 2008 and can confirm this is at its best around 7 to 8 years old...

Smells

A beautifully generous and detailed nose showing ripe stonefruits, grapefruit, Anzac biscuit, hazelnut and brioche.

Tastes

Full bodied, creamy and generous with a lovely, biscuity lees character and a long, refined finish with hints of butterscotch. Amazing Chardonnay that will convert even the staunchest ABCs!
