La Tour Melas Nautilus Drink Pink
La Tour Melas Nautilus Drink Pink gives off major holiday vibes. Basking in the clear waters of Greece, with wafts of roses and orange blossoms. A blend of Grenache, Syrah and Agiorgitiko.
Light peachy lemon colour. Refined nose of roses, orange blossoms and strawberries. The light-bodied palate has a delicate balance of crisp acidity with fruity flavours of blood orange, pomegranate and pink grapefruit. Closes with a lovely minerality and long, elegant finish.
The La Tour Melas vineyard sits on a Northeast facing slope that reaches an altitude of up to 200 metres. The soil has an alluvial gravel composition, consisting mainly of clay, sand, grit and limestone coastal conglomerates. Typical Mediterranean climate. Mild wet winters, with hot and dry summers. Low rainfall between 600 and 700 mm. The impact of the sea is very important as the breeze brings humidity and maintains the grapevines cool during the day, whereas the rocky soil keeps the vines warm at night. The terraces are Northeast facing. All these elements combined offer an ideal micro-climate.
The blend comprises of 50% Agiorgitiko, 20% Syrah and 30% Grenache. After harvesting by hand, the grapes go through a meticulous selection. Cold fermentation for 13–20 days, ageing on fine lees for 4 months.
