Nautilus Sauvignon Blanc 2022
|Region||New Zealand, Marlborough|
Like the shell pictured on its label, there's quite a bit of saline oyster shell, flint and smoky reductive notes to start on this classy Sauvignon. The lime and passion fruit aromas, along with dried green herbs, peek through the cracks. Flint and shell nuances continue on the palate. Some chalky textural weigh counterbalances the fleshy fruit and crisp acidity. There's a lingering lime and herb finish. Food friendly and affordable, this has the ability to age until around 2028.
