2012 Nautilus Chardonnay

Marlborough, NEW ZEALAND
$27.99 Bottle
  • Cellar 3 - 4 years (2016-2017)
  • ABV 13.5%
  • Closure: Stelvin

The 2012 growing season was characterised by a cool, overcast summer and a late harvest. A poor flowering resulted in very low Chardonnay crops and concentrated flavours. The wine was entirely barrel fermented in french oak barriques (20% new) using indigenous yeast. A period of lees stirring post ferment adds a textural element to the palate.

Trophy Winner for Champion Wine of the Show at the New Zealand International Wine Show 2013

Brilliant pale straw colour with a greenish highlight around the edges and watery hue. The nose offers up a combination of ripe white peach, nougat and honeycomb followed by some cashew and spice. Elegantly weighted but with a rich creamy mouthfeel the palate possesses ripe white peach flavours alongside some honeycomb, nougat and cashew. Clean dry finish showing good acid structure and plenty of liveliness. Long white peach, nougat, cashew and spicy honeycomb aftertaste.
Cellar 3-4 years.
Alc Vol: 13.5%
