100% Pinot Noir. Nautilus Clay Hills Vineyard produces an elegant yet expansive Pinot Noir, benefiting from whole bunch fermentation that imparts a lifted floral and spice profile while avoiding any green undertones. The palate offers fullness and finesse, showcasing cherry fruits and lingering tannins that create a satisfying experience. Situated in Marlborough's Southern Valleys, the vineyard comprises 6 distinct blocks with varied aspects and elevations. Block 3, featuring north-facing 890 clone 5 vines, was hand-picked and underwent 100% whole bunch fermentation, followed by a slow spontaneous fermentation over 8 days. The wine matured in barrels (25% new) after 18 days on skins. ABV 12.5%
