2006 Nautilus Sauvignon Blanc
Marlborough, New Zealand
Every year when I look at the current release Sauvignon Blancs I have a new favourite. This year a wine that has charmed me is the Nautilus Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, New Zealand.
This is a particularly delectable wine due to its expressive tropical aroma and its hint of herbaceousness. The palate is very sweet-fruited with defined and piercing flavours. It is a wine style that would be enjoyed by many and it is true of the Marlborough style.
It is perfectly lovely enjoyed on its own though it also makes a great
partner to fresh fish and seafood.
Available from good bottle shops.
