Reviews and Ratings

Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A fine, fragrant, toasty and creamy Chardonnay. Aromas showcase cooked yellow delicious apple, stewed pears, honey, winter baking spices, and hazelnuts. The palate is rich, full-bodied, and buttery. Enjoy with poached salmon topped with a buttery sage sauce. Tasted May 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
Nautilus (2015 is a yummy, buttery and full-bodied Chardonnay from South Island, New Zealand. The Chardonnay grapes for this wine are grown on selected sites in the cool climate of Marlborough and are hand-picked, whole bunch pressed to keep the delicate flavoured wine juice very fresh. Great silky texture on this wine. - Community Wine Reviews
