AWARDS - RATINGS
Nautilus 2016: Gold Medal at Berliner Wein Trophy 2017
Nautilus white 2018: Wine Advocate 2019: 91/100: “The 2018 Nautilus white has many virtues, though, including plenty of tension on the finish. The fruit flavors linger nicely, some dried pear and melon. It is a great finish. Although it will age decently, it will be great this summer. This might be the best intersection of quality and price in this tasting".
Jancis Robinson 2019: Foivos, Nautilus 2018 white: 16,5/20: “After bottling the wine, the bottles were placed for experimental maturation in a cement tank filled with fresh water. Free-run juice only. The initial impression is that inviting dusty/stony aroma I associate with rocky or volcanic soils but there's tangy green fruits and a slightly wild sour note. On the palate, a little more grapey but bone dry and mouth-wateringly fresh. Succulent and yet so dry. Very long finish”.
