Twin Islands Sauvignon Blanc and Nautilus Estate Sauvignon Blanc with Szechuan Braised Octopus from Chef Rodelio Aglibot
First released in 1992, Twin Islands Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc offers excellent full flavoured wine at great value.
Fruit is sourced from specifically chosen vineyards in the heartland of the stunning Marlborough region. These sites enjoy excellent ripening conditions for flavour development in sauvignon Blanc.
Twin Islands does the utmost to harvest grapes with maximum flavour and freshness and to retain these throughout the fermentation process. The wine is then sealed with a screw cap, to retain all of its aromatics and fresh fruit characters in the bottle.
As for Nautilus Estate, this is a “serious” style of Sauvignon Blanc, designed to complement food rather than overpower it and to develop in bottle. Nautilus Sauvignon Blanc frequently stands out in tastings of aged or back vintage Marlborough Sauvignons.
