“It was twenty years ago today, Sgt. Pepper taught the band to play. They’ve been going in and out of style But they’re guaranteed to raise a smile. So may I introduce to you……….”
New Zealand wines have a short history and only a few have 25 years of experience, Nautilus Estate in Marlborough is one who recently celebrated their 25th birthday.
I like people and wineries who have confidence in what they do – Nautilus Estate displayed this recently at a Twitter #SauvBlanc tasting and opened a 2002 Sauvignon Blanc – while a Twitter tasting does not let participants share what is in everyone’s glass – I give them the benefit of the doubt and believe their 2002 was still a respectable glass of wine. This is special when so many wines today do not excite enough to have a second glass.
Happy Birthday to everyone at Nautilus Estate.
