- ABV 14%
- Closure: Screw Cap
Opawa (“Smokey River” in Maori) is the second label of Nautilus and builds on their reputation as one of the region’s most respected producers of Pinot Noir. The company is presently an exception in Marlborough, having constructed a specialised, state-of-the-art wine making facility dedicated exclusively to the variety incorporating principles of minimal handling and gravity flow.
This is a very well made example showing distinctive varietal character.
The grapes spent seven days cold soaking after which a wild ferment commenced. Maximum flavours were retained by minimal handling. Semi translucent crimson mauve colour with mauve hue. Top note of cherry followed by violet, spice and strawberry jam. Perfumed lifted nose. Moderate power wave with flavours of strawberry, cherry and spice over a touch of anise. Lingering palate flavours. Fine grained tannins. Long aftertaste of cherry, spice and game.
Cellar 2-3 years (2011-2012)
First Tasted, April 2008:
A well made Pinot Noir grown on the Rapaura gravels. The berries were cold soaked for 7 days after which a wild ferment commenced. Medium body crimson mauve colour with crimson mauve hue. Lifted nose – with top note of spice, black cherry, violet and plum, delivering a perfumed sniff. The palate delivers an impressive power wave, with ripe cherry and ripe plum flavours over a background of spice and anise. Velvet smooth tannins with a very long aftertaste.
Cellar 3-4 years (2011-2012)
