The 2010 growing season was characterised by a cool slow start but a warm dry finish. This together with moderate cropping levels meant the vintage kicked off at a 'normal' time and the majority of our Sauvignon Blanc was harvested over a 2 week period between 29th March and 15th April. Nautilus Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2010 is pale straw in color and has a fragrant aroma showing goose- berry, black currant leaf, red capsicum and a hint of dried thyme. The palate reveals lime/grapefruit characters along with more tropical flavors such as melon and passionfruit. This wine has good mid palate concentration and a typically zingy finish.
Winemaker Clive Jones has been steadily improving the wines at Nautilus, and the 2010 Sauvignon Blanc may be his best yet. Leafy, capsicum notes arise on the nose and persist through the finish, backed with just enough grapefruit to see them through. Lithe and refreshing.
