Wine Review: Nautilus Cuvee Marlborough Brut NV
Made from 70 percent Pinot Noir and 30 percent Chardonnay, the Nautilus Cuvée Marlborough Brut NV fruit comes from three vineyard sites, giving them a range of flavour influences.
Pale straw in colour with a fine bead and creamy mousse. The wine has a distinctive nutty bouquet, which shows the richness of a Pinot Noir dominant blend and the benefits of extended maturation. An elegant, finely structured wine in which the fruit flavours harmonise with biscuity, yeast-derived complexities and crisp acidity to give a lingering dry finish.
Ideal food match: Try with delicious fresh oysters or parmesan wafers.
