The 2017 Nautilus Sauvignon Blanc displays intense lifted aromas of passionfruit stem, citrus notes and fresh herbs. The palate introduces a delightful lime/citrus based mouth-watering intensity and finishes with a strong textural component.

2017 was a challenging season where attention to detail in the vineyards paid dividends. While spring and summer where kind with good growing conditions and healthy vines, a couple of significant rain events provided some challenges over harvest. Thankfully the vast majority of our premium Sauvignon Blanc was picked in excellent condition prior to the rain. The small amount that we couldn’t harvest prior held up really well and the resulting wines still made it through our rigorous selection process on the blending bench. The key to success in 2017 was to be prepared to make quick decisions and have faith in the quality sites to still produce remarkable wines even in the most challenging years.

The fruit was machine harvested at night or in the cool of the morning, gently crushed and pressed then fermented with a variety of aromatic yeast strains in stainless steel tanks - the sole aim being to reflect and preserve the flavours and aromas grown in the vineyard. 45% of the juice fermentations were started with a non-saccharomyces yeast and 2% of the blend was barrel fermented. After fermentation, the wine was kept in contact with the lees for five months. This classic technique enhances creaminess and integrates flavours.
