Twin Islands Chardonnay/Pinot Noir Brut NV (2011)

A great bottle to be seen with in some of the classiest bars and restaurants’, Nautilus’s lower-priced bubbly sold for $17 a few years ago, vanished for a while, then reappeared in late 2009. The price is now $25, but it’s worth it. The batch I tasted in September 2011 (4*) is pale straw, scented and tight, with slightly creamy and toasty flavours, showing good richness and harmony.
