100% Pinot Noir. The 2017 Nautilus Pinot Noir showcases a dark ruby hue with a complex nose revealing dark fruits, earthy nuances, and subtle toasty spices. The palate boasts concentration and elegance, featuring a finely dense core of tannins and a long, savory finish. The vintage was marked by favorable growing conditions in spring and summer, resulting in healthy vines and excellent fruit condition upon harvest. Utilizing a blend of Pinot Noir clones, hand-harvested fruit underwent indigenous yeast fermentation with gentle cap management. After pressing, the wine matured in a mix of new and older French oak Barriques, yielding a truly exceptional potential. Bottled in March 2018, it captures the essence of the vintage's quality. ABV 13.5%
