The 2011 growing season was characterised by a warm spring and a good fruit set meant that fruit thinning was required to hit our quality targets.
Our premium Pinot Noir was all picked in an 8 day period that sat nicely between our sparkling and Sauvignon Blanc harvests. This wine is a carefully selected blend from four premium vineyard sites, predominantly from the Southern Valleys sub region.
- NZ - Marlborough
- New Zealand
Winery Tasting Notes
The 2011 Nautilus Pinot Noir is dark ruby in colour.
The nose is fragrant with enticing aromas of pomegranate, star anise and cardamom.
The palate is medium bodied with fine grained tannins. Refined and balanced, this elegant wine shows good intensity and a lengthy finish.
The primary fruit components showing in the wines youth will further develop and integrate over the next five years as the wine matures.
Beautiful accompanied by Venison with Star Anise.
