2012 Nautilus Museum Release Pinot Noir

Aged Pinot Noir at its prime!

FWDC 93/100

Description

This is a wine that graced our shelves a couple of years ago when it was initially released, however Nautilus' Museum Release programme means we now have an exciting new opportunity to re-visit these wines with some maturity on theme, perfectly highlighting the aging capability of New Zealand wines, something that is often overlooked when compared to old-world wines. The aging has certainly paid off, with a wine that is even more complex and exciting to drink than when it was originally released.

Smells

Subtle red fruits and spices with pretty florals and oak spice rounding out the inviting aromas. A hint of savouriness is starting to come through, an extra layer added from the time spent in bottle.

Tastes

Tart, crunchy red fruit flavours on entry with an array of attractive exotic spices, with the secondary savouriness from bottle age showing through again, framed by fine, cuddly tannins. Just coming into a great drinking window now, this is a fine example of what a bit of age does to top quality New Zealand wine. Drink now and over the next 3 years for a Pinot Noir treat.
