There were two scrub covered parcels of land, just outside Pokolbin village along McDonalds Road, that local council had long set aside for use as cricket ground and cemetery. Both were ultimately auctioned off to the highest bidders and sown to vine. A third undeveloped site became the subject of a long running feud among the new and old neighbours. Dodgy invoices between the rivals were exchanged and the division of firewood became a further cause of contention. A truce was eventually called by the two protagonists, Brokenwood and Hungerford Hill, for the sake of healthy viticulture. The nascent blocks achieved international renown as the eminent Cricket Pitch and the Langtons Listed Graveyard Vineyard, establishing Brokenwood as one of the most cherished marques in Hunter Valley wine...

One of our nation's enduring winemaking dynasties, the Hamiltons planted vines just outside Adelaide in 1837. Great grandson Sydney Hamilton was a legendary and innovative viticulturalist, he ultimately made his own oenological conversion to the sacred Terra Rosa soils of Coonawarra in 1974, establishing one of Australia's most distinguished vineyards on a highly auspicious site, naming the property after forebear Lord Leconfield.

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.

When Nautilus Chardonnay wins another award, that's all very well, but the aim is to ensure the absolute enjoyment of good wine. Parcels of clone 15 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.
