GOLD MEDAL | Dish Magazine's Top Pinot Noirs of 2023
Nautilus has developed a reputation as one of the finest Marlborough producers and their Pinots never fails to impress. Nautilus Clay Hills Vineyard is located on the ridge that divides the Brancott and Omaka Valleys and this vineyard has rapidly become the cornerstone block for Nautilus Pinot Noir where the clay based soils contribute a silken texture and fine grained tannins. This fragrant pinot displays aromas of cassis and cherries, and finished long and elegant. Class all the way.
The winery writes "This wine has aromas of cassis, ripe dark cherries, toasted spices and savoury notes. The mid-palate shows fruit sweetness, while generous but fine-grained tannins contribute to a lingering elegant finish."
