Nautilus Pinot Noir Pinot Noir 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Nautilus Estate has had a focus on producing premium Pinot Noir from the Marlborough region for over 10 years. The majority of the fruit now comes from two specialised Pinot Noir vineyards on the clay slopes on the southern side of the Wairau Valley. Small parcels are also grown on intensively managed sites in the Awatere Valley and the Wairau Valley floor with each site, contributing a specific character to the regional blend. The dedicated Pinot Noir cellar incorporates principles of minimal handling and gravity flow and allows the producer to handle all the fruit with the utmost respect. The Nautilus Marlborough Pinot Noir 2007 is dark ruby in colour with an aroma of dark fruits and raspberries with hints of chocolate and spice. The palate is medium to full-bodied with generous fruit sweetness, a soft tannin structure and a warm finish. The primary components showing in the wines youth will further integrate and develop over the next five years as the wine matures.

Refreshing and light, with raspberries and a hint of spice on the finish.

Pinot Noir 2008 - Nautilus : Pinot Noir 2008 - Rotwein von NautilusSo und nicht anders stellt man sich einen echten neuseeländischen Pinot Noir vor. Er ist ein herrlicher Begleiter zu Tisch und begeistert mit seiner klaren Struktur.Das Glas wird von einem transparenten Rubinrot erfüllt. Frische und klare Aromen erfreuen die Nase und erinnern an Himbeeren und Kirschen mit einer zarten Würze. Am Gaumen zeigt sich der Pinot Noir 2008 von Nautilus sehr frisch, mit einem mittleren Körper, der von einer frischen, präsenten Säure und weichen Tanninen getragen wird. Die intensiven Aromen erinnern erneut an Kirschen und Himbeeren. Dazu gesellen sich die klassischen Würzaromen des Pinot Noir und leicht erdige Töne. Sein Finale ist angenehm samtig. Dieser Pinot Noir ist besonders zu Burgunderbraten, Raclette, Wildgeflügel und Parmigiano zu empfehlen. Er sollte eine Stunde vor dem Genuss geöffnet werden.Weingut: NautilusLand: NeuseelandRegion: MarlboroughRebsorte: 100% Pinot NoirInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 14,0 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 5,75 g/lRestsüße: trockenFassreife: in Barriques gereift Lagerfähigkeit: 3-5 Jahre ab JahrgangEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 12-16 °C Rotwein > Neuseeland > Marlborough
