This 2015 vintage Nautilus Pinot Gris is pale straw in colour, with aromas of citrus blossom, fresh cut pears and delicate hints of five spice. The medium bodied palate shows concentrated pure fruit flavours with a bright, crisp and dry finish.
The fruit was hand harvested 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. This classic technique enhances creaminess and integrates the flavours.
