DESCRIPTION
  • The natural beauty of the Nautilus shell has inspired the expressive, balanced and precisely crafted wines of Nautilus Estate since 1985, the early days of Marlborough winegrowing. Back then there were only 80 NZ wineries. Today there are nearly 700. Yet they remain small, family-owned, and committed to the stunningly beautiful Marlborough region.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    The fruit was hand-picked and chilled overnight before de-stemming to tank incorporating a 25% whole bunch component. After a 10 day cold soak the wine completed a spontaneous fermentation and remained on skins for a total of 18 days before pressing. After 24 hours settling, the wine was racked to 228 litre French Oak barriques (33% new) and matured for 11 months before clarification and bottling.

    TASTING NOTES

    This wine has aromas of raspberry and darker fruits with a hint of toast. The mid palate shows some fruit sweetness and a fine grained tannin structure contributes to the length and depth to the finish.

  • REVIEWS

    'This is the first release of this limited edition single vineyard wine. A deeply scented aroma leads to floral, violet, red cherry and raspberry flavours with a subtle hint of fresh herbs and spices. A medium-bodied Pinot Noir with impressive power and potential.'
