Selected for the Fine Wines of New Zealand List


Nautilus Marlborough Cuvee is consistently rated as one of New Zealand's very best bubblies. It has had fantastic ratings from critics and wine shows worldwide, numerous top listings in Cuisine and selected for the 2020 Fine Wines of New Zealand List. Made in the traditional method from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay it is aged on its lees for at least three years to develop delicious biscuity toasty flavours before being disgorged. 


Winery notes (NV)
"The Nautilus Cuvée Marlborough Brut NV is pale straw in colour with a fine bead and creamy mousse. The wine has a distinctive nutty bouquet, which shows the richness of a Pinot Noir dominant blend and the benefits of extended maturation. An elegant finely structured wine in which the fruit flavours harmonise with biscuity, yeast derived complexities and crisp acidity to give a lingering dry finish."


5 Stars Michael Cooper, October 2021 (NV)
"Recent releases of this non-vintage, bottle-fermented sparkling have revealed an intensity and refinement that positions the label among the finest in the country. Made with Pinot Noir (mostly) and Chardonnay, it is blended with older reserve stocks held in old oak barriques and disgorged after a minimum of three years aging on its yeast lees. Rich, piercing, crisp and long, it's a beautifully tight, vivacious and refined wine, its vibrant Marlborough fruit characters enriched with intense, bready aromas and flavours. The sample I tasted in October 2021 was – as the back label indicates helpfully – disgorged in May 2021. Bright, light lemon/green, it is very finely balanced, with rich, vigorous, peachy, slightly citrusy flavours, yeasty and toasty notes adding complexity, and a long finish."


5 Stars & 95/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, March 2020 (NV)
"Pinot Noir-dominant Méthode with three years on the yeast lees in bottle. Citrus, ginger and nut flavours with a strong biscuity yeast lees influence and an ethereal texture. An impressively complex Champagne-like wine."


Rated Excellent & 94/100 Cameron Douglas MS, October 2020 (NV)
"Pristine, fresh, pure, savoury and delicately complex. Citrus, white peach, fresh red apple, savoury and fine. The autolysis is quite intense with toasted brioche and oaty flavours then savoury and complex. Tense and youthful, explosive mousse, long and dry. A lovely expression of bottled fermented sparkling wine. Balanced, crisp, refreshing and ready. best drinking from today and through 2025+."


Rebecca Gibb MW, January 2019 (NV)
"Nutty and brioche-like showing its lees time and use of reserve wines. Rich on the mid palate with plenty of concentration on the mid palate. The warmer climes and sun of Marlborough showing in its riper fruit expression – red fruit and some caramelised pineapple. Fine balanced acidity and a textural conclusion."


4 Stars & 90/100 NZ Wine Rater, March 2022 (NV Vintage)
"Pale lemon colour with a fine bead. Lifted, aromatic, with apple, pear skin and melon fruit characters and fresh bread / white pepper lees influence. Clean, crisp, lighter-weight, easy drinking style with positive textural elements, gala apple flavours and a tangy, zesty finish."

    5 star review  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!

    5 star review  Amazing customer service. Vino Fino arranged a gift wrapped, hand delivered, chilled bottle of champagne for the morning of my best friends wedding, as I was stuck in the UK with COVID. A beautiful gift. It was like nothing was too much trouble for them. I was even able to dictate a small message. Thank you for your excellent service!

  • 5 star review  Not only do they sell delicious wine at great prices, but the owners of the store couldn't be more lovely. We had to cancel our wedding twice due to covid-19 and they have been amazing in helping us return and sell our alcohol. They have gone above and beyond. Highly recommend.

The staff are very knowledgeable and their recommendations/reviews are spot on. I do not bother buying wine from anywhere else and if i'm in a rush - simply order it online. 10/10

    5 star review  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.
