Nautilus Pinot Noir 2010 Malborough, New Zealand

IMG_0350.jpg

I am trying to be excited by this Pinot Noir from Malborough but despite the fact it is one of my favourite grapes, Nautilus 2010 is failing. It is certainly a smooth number but lacks nose and any real dynamism. Somewhat frustrating that I have another 5 bottles and I am hoping that they deliver. With food, it has a very strong sweet after taste.

I was expecting better.
