100% Sauvignon Blanc. The 2022 Nautilus Sauvignon Blanc boasts intense aromas of passionfruit, lemongrass, and ripe grapefruit. The palate offers vibrant lime zest flavors with invigorating intensity, culminating in a pronounced textural quality. The 2022 growing season started favorably, with initial months setting up a promising crop after last year's low yields. February's rain and cloudiness raised concerns, followed by a dry period leading to a swift, 14-day harvest, marked by Covid-related challenges. Machine-harvested fruit was promptly crushed and pressed, undergoing fermentation with various aromatic yeast strains in stainless steel tanks. Lees contact for three months enriched creaminess and flavor integration.
