Winemaker Notes
The 2020 Nautilus Sauvignon Blanc displays intense lifted aromas of passionfruit and citrus peel and hints of honeydew melon. The palate introduces a delightful citrus based mouth-watering intensity and finishes with a strong textural component.

The high acidity and fresh flavors pair well with a wide range of seafood and vegetarian dishes. The flavor intensity can stand up to some chilli and the herb notes in the wine compliment Thai ingredients such as basil or lemongrass.

Critical Acclaim
92 Points by James Suckling
Very attractive peach and passion-fruit notes with fresh lime, too. The palate has a smooth, fleshy feel with succulent passion-fruit and lime flavors. Good depth and concentration, too.

92 Points by Wine Spectator
Vibrant, with fresh pomelo, ginger and lemon zest flavors that reverberate at the core. Details of lemon verbena, celery leaf and saline linger on the long, expressive and mouthwatering finish. Smart Buy

90 Points by Vinous
There's an impressive sense of balance and substance on the midpalate of this wine, which offers classic Sauvignon flavors of gooseberry, passion fruit, pineapple and grapefruit, but the aromatic flamboyance is reined in; this is mid-volume, not boom-box Sauvignon. The fine, balanced acidity and dry finish make this a great “session” Sauvignon – i.e., you can have a third glass. Drinking window: 2020 - 2024.

90 Points by Decanter
Quite a grassy, citrussy style of Sauvignon Blanc, with more of the perky gooseberry and nettle side of the flavour spectrum than overt tropical fruit. There's sharp sherbet lemon acidity running throughout, turning more creamy on the finish. Perfect with a Friday fish supper.

90 Points by Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Marked by ebullient scents of passion fruit and cut herbs, the 2020 Sauvignon Blanc layers those atop a solid base of grapefruit citrus. It's medium-bodied, with a mouthfeel enriched by five months on the lees and a long, silky finish. It's a fine, elegant example of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc for drinking over the next couple of years.
