"Lemon curd, Key lime and pear flavors are aromatic and intense, set on a smooth and juicy frame, with pretty details of lemongrass, candied ginger and nectarine. Lingering finish. Drink now. 40,000 cases made, 20,000 cases imported. -MW" (WS)

"Pungent and grassy, the Nautilus 2019 Sauvignon Blanc layers those elements over a strident base of passion fruit. It's crisp and medium-bodied, lean and refreshing, ending with a bright burst of grapefruit flavor and surprising length." (WA)

"Some attractive flowers and grassy elements with fresh limes and grapefruit pith, as well as a very juicy and fleshy array of vibrant, rich and bright melon that delivers a fresh, zesty and intense feel with so much flavor. Drink now. Screw cap." (JS)

"This wine is a touch salty and flinty to start, which adds character to the notes of lemon-lime, gooseberry, pineapple rind, honeysuckle and green herbs wafting from the glass. A creamy yet chalky texture is woven with juicy fruit and prickly acidity, ending long and citrusy. Spicy Mexican or Thai cuisine has met its match. -Christina Pickard" (WE)

Winery Notes:
The 2019 Nautilus Sauvignon Blanc displays intense lifted aromas of passion fruit and citrus peel and hints of honeydew melon. The palate introduces a delightful citrus based mouth-watering intensity and finishes with a strong textural component. Crunchy Fish Tacos with zesty yogurt, lime & chive sauce.
