100% Pinot Gris. The 2022 Nautilus Pinot Gris boasts a pale straw color and vibrant aromas of fresh pears, quince paste, honeysuckle, lime zest, and subtle spice notes. The medium-bodied palate offers concentrated fruit flavors, bright acidity, and a pleasantly dry finish. The vintage began with favorable conditions, resulting in a relief from the low yields of the previous year. Though February brought rain and cloudy weather, a subsequent dry spell prior to harvest was eagerly anticipated. Despite logistical challenges, Vintage 2022 came together remarkably well. Hand-harvested fruit was gently pressed and fermented using an aromatic yeast strain in stainless steel tanks, with a small portion in old oak barrels for added texture. Lees contact for four months enhanced creaminess and flavor integration. ABV 13.5%
