Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"This 2019 vintage Nautilus Pinot Gris is pale straw in colour, with vibrant aromas of fresh pears, quince, ginger and delicate hints of five-spice. The medium-bodied palate shows concentrated fruit flavours, with a deliciously dry finish."
5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, November 2019 (2019 Vintage)
"Offering a sense of restraint, this gorgeously styled pinot gris shows pear, lemon peel, floral and fig characters on the nose with a touch of fragrant spice. It’s concentrated and beautifully weighted on the palate with rounded mouthfeel and bright acidity, promising to evolve gracefully. It is also immediately appealing now. At its best: now to 2024."
92/100 Cameron Douglas MS, October 2019 (2019 Vintage)
"Fruity, varietal and captivating aromas of fresh white fleshed fruits, whispers of tropical fruit & a dusting of white pepper. Salivating on the palate with youthful acidity, a crunchy texture with a satin topline. Flavours mirror the nose with a core of pear , apple and fresh lychee. A great Summer wine – drink now and through 2021."
4 ½ Stars Michael Cooper (2019 Vintage)
"Clean, mineral-driven aromas, with a squeak of nashi on the nose lead the way to a rich, dry palate packed with pear and apple characters, fresh, prickly acidity and a long, spicy, slightly musky finish. Great stuff!"
