Nautilus Southern Valleys Pinot Noir 2015



There's a lot to like about this Pinot. It's a serious type of fellow - furrowed brow, all concentration and focused on the business.

A blend of two vineyards, this is all dense fruit centred on dark berries and plums. Dried red flower aromas come in to play with a few more swirls of the glass. Medium bodied, there's a dusting of cocoa and a cheeky appearance from apricot kernel finishing with fine lingering spices. Overall, the width and depth is the winner but a greeny leafiness appears right at the death. Overlook that last bit and you'll enjoy this wine for sure.

Drink now to eight years.
