Grown to the frigid climes of Central Otago, the vines at Prophet's Rock were established 1999 to the most auspicious sites in the nether regions around the ancient goldfields of Bendigo Creek. Challenging aspects with breathtaking views of Cromwell Basin and Pisa Ranges, these are places defined by their fortuitous soils and favourable climes, tiny parcels of vine capable of just a few hundred cases each vintage, picked for their confluence of growing conditions and husbanded by a devout cadre. The winemaking is decidedly French, small vessels and wild yeasts, followed by an extended term on sedimentary lees for opulence. Invigorated by the warmth of alluvial pebbles and infused by the minerality of quartz schists, the opportune vines yield a small range of wines, made by environmental purists in the old fashioned way, crafted to the most uncompromising standards and branded as Prophet's..

Established 1851 by the French Marist order, Mission Estate are New Zealand's oldest winery, under continuous management ever since. The city of Lyon's Society of Mary sailed to New Zealand with little more than faith, fair winds and a few healthy vines.

Nautilus Marlborough Chardonnay CONFIRM VINTAGE

Chardonnay Marlborough New Zealand
One of New Zealand's most consistent Chardonnay, a label that will not disappoint, Nautilus has received great recognition at international competitions. Whole bunches are treated to an indigenous fermentation in a mix of seasoned and new French oak barriques, followed by a course of lees battonage for richness. A highly demanding viticultural focus, combined with the best of old and new world winemaking techniques, translates into a wine of balance and poise, as mesmerisingly aesthetic as the spiral on a nautilus shell.

Parcels of clone 15 Chardonnay from the Renwick block and Korohi Vineyard on Pauls Road, are vinified alongside harvests of Dijon clone 95, grown by Jim and Debbie Greer on their Rapaura Road property. These sites are stony and free draining, giving naturally low yields and fantastic depth of flavour. All blocks are hand picked to a schedule determined by full ripeness without excessive sugars, whole bunch pressed and wild yeast fermented in French oak barriques. A regimen of lees stirring post ferment adds textural richness.
Pale straw in colour. A lifted aroma of tropical fruit and melon supported by toasty oak. On the palate are grapefruit/ citrus flavours integrated with nutty/ biscuit characters derived from indigenous fermentation and lees stirring. Nautilus has a tight mineral structure in its youth and develops a creamy texture as it matures.
