Description

A fabulous boutique Single Vineyard wine expressing the outstanding Pinot Noir specific terroir of “Kaituna Vineyard” – normally only available at Nautilus Cellar Door for $68.00 bottle. We have secured an exclusive 80 x 6-pack parcel originally export bound… and cancelled at the last moment. Launch plans for the next vintage release at Cellar Door were well advanced… so the winery offered us a staggering one off $34.99 (monster $33.00 bottle discount) to urgently and quietly CLEAR this Export order to select FWD premium Pinot customers. Over the last 10-15 years Nautilus have invested heavily in specific sites with potential for yielding outstanding individual vineyard Pinot Noir… like the great Villages of red Burgundy. Kaituna vineyard is planted with a complex basket of Burgundian clones plus the legendary “Abel” clone made famous by “Ata Rangi” … NZ’s finest Pinot Noir. The production spec sheet for Kaituna Vineyard reads like a winemaking Masterclass… with no expense spared. It is very complex and elegant with Burgundian like tannin/acid balance and perfect sweet/savoury contrast. A Pinot made to gain in complexity and finesse over time. The winery has aged this 2016 for 7-years. Now in the magical 7–10-year peak drinking window and purely due to a Cancelled Export complication… our select customers can have this magnificent experience circa ½ price. Grab your requirements and enjoy now through 2025 for a magnificent Burgundy like aged Pinot experience.

Smells

Crunchy high tone red fruits, raspberries and cranberry with lifted spices, dried herbs, plus hints of violets, and rosehips.

Tastes

The fine palate is layered with delicious bottle aged complexities of forest floor and savoury mushroom notes threading a continuous and flavoursome body of red fruits. Salivating moreish tannins and juicy acidity embrace and carry the palate to an energetic, fine finish. Perfect drinking now through 2025 and will marry well with pasta, mushrooms, or gamey meats.
