Wine tasting notes

The 2017 Nautilus Pinot Noir is dark ruby in colour. The complex nose displays dark fruits, earthy notes and a touch of toasty spice. The palate is concentrated and elegant with a fine dense core of tannins and a long savoury finish.

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2017) - 91 pts

To its considerable credit, the 2017 Southern Valleys Pinot Noir avoids the tutti-frutti excesses of many Marlborough Pinot Noirs, offering earthy notes, black cherries and a dusting of cinnamon and clove. It's medium to full-bodied, with ample concentration, softly dusty tannins and a lingering finish.

Darker than their Opawa Pinot 2018. Also a little sweeter and more oaky on the nose, more obviously concentrated. Deep, smooth and very well balanced between the fruit and the oak. Tannins already soft and silky but firm enough to give shape and structure. Deep-fruited and mouth-wateringly fresh at the same time. Tannins seem to be a little more chewy on the finish, suggesting this is going to age well.


James Suckling (2017) - 94 pts

Boldness and refinement at work here; it really impresses with rich dark cherries, boldly spicy oak and a very attractively focused and punchy drive on the palate. Drink now, but better in a few years. Screw cap.
