The Opawa River formed the gravel soils that make up the Marlborough Winegrowing heartland which includes the Nautilus Opawa Vineyard, and lead to the ripe, juicy structure of this wine. Building on Nautilus' reputation as one of the region's most respected producers of Pinot Noir, and its specialised Pinot Noir winemaking facility, Opawa meets a demand for a top quality, mid price pinot.
Brett Bermingham grew up in the Marlborough Region and started his career in the wine industry at Highfield, Cloudy Bay and Rapaura Vintners Limited before gaining international winemaking experience in Victoria and Oregon. He returned home to work at Rapaura Vintners where Nautilus was a shareholder at the time. Brett specialised in making Nautilus Pinot, working in our dedicated Pinot facility until he joined Nautilus officially in 2006. He is generally to be found wandering through the Pinot Winery with a barrel thief in his hand and a smile on his face. Brett has had responsibility for the Opawa range of wines since 2008.
