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.
