The Details

Tasting Note The Nautilus Pinot Gris is pale straw in colour, with vibrant aromas of fresh pears, quince, ginger and delicate hints of cloves. The medium-bodied palate shows concentrated fruit flavours, bright acidity and a deliciously dry finish.
Best Enjoyed With Softshell crab in tempura batter with a lime-chilli dip.
Treatment The fruit was handpicked and chilled overnight before being gently pressed and fermented with an aromatic yeast strain in stainless steel tanks - the sole aim being to reflect and preserve the flavours and aromas grown in the vineyard. A small portion was fermented in old oak barrels to provide a textural element. After fermentation, the wine was kept in contact with the lees for five months.

The Story

The natural beauty and mathematical precision of the nautilus shell has been our inspiration to create expressive, textural, precisely crafted wines at Nautilus Estate since 1985. Back in those days there were around 80 wineries in New Zealand. Today there are over 500, yet we remain under the same family ownership, committed to making wines from the stunningly beautiful Marlborough region of New Zealand.
