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 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."

18.5/20 Joelle Thomson, drinksbiz Magazine, December 2023/January 2024 (NV)
"Consistently one of the best New Zealand sparkling wines, thanks to winemaker Clive Jones’ long term at the helm of Nautilus and the fact that this wine is modelled on Bollinger, down to the fine details. Made from 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay, the wine has toasty aromas of mushroom and savoury sourdough leading into a full-bodied and fresh sparkling drop. It is released to market in small volumes to retain quality and freshness of flavour."

5 Stars Michael Cooper, November 2023 (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 latest batch was bottled in October 2019 and disgorged from its yeast lees in July 2023 (you can see that on the rear of the bottle). Pale straw, with a fragrant, yeasty, complex bouquet, it is refined, with intense, peachy, biscuity, complex flavours, crisp, vigorous, very harmonious and long."

4 Stars Cuisine Méthode Traditionnelle Tasting, November 2023 (NV)
"Aged for an extended time on lees to accentuate the toasty characters present that meld well with the reductive aromas on the nose. The bold palate is layered and complex with citrus and ripe stone fruit flavours and bright acid."

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."

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+."

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."

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."

Nautilus Estate's dedicated and forward-thinking team of viticulturists and winemakers have a very particular approach to their craft: they carefully blend various fruit parcels to create wines with intricate layers of complexity and put a special emphasis on enhancing their texture and mouthfeel. To achieve this, they are equipped with state-of-the-art, albeit small-scale, winemaking facilities that provide the necessary tools and precision.

While Nautilus wines are certainly enjoyable on their own, their true potential shines when paired with delectable cuisine. Winemaker Clive Jones places a significant emphasis on crafting wines that harmonise seamlessly with food, making it one of Nautilus' core philosophies.

At Nautilus, simplicity is a guiding principle, reflected in a small friendly team. A smaller team size allows each member to be fully engaged in the winemaking process from start to finish. It also affords Clive, the winemaker, the opportunity to dedicate his time to the art of winemaking rather than the management of a large workforce. It's an intentionally hands-on approach!

Excellent winery facilities grant Nautilus Estate the freedom to harvest grapes at their peak ripeness rather than being constrained by logistical considerations. This level of control extends to aspects such as the degree of extraction – the color and flavour – obtained from the grape skins.

Being a family-owned vineyard, they have the privilege of drawing upon generations of experience in the ever-evolving world of wine production. Owner, Robert Hill Smith, represents their fifth generation of family vintners, a lineage underscoring a commitment to a cautious, long-term approach. Changes are only implemented if they enhance the quality of their wines.

Nautilus invites you to savour a relaxed and informal wine tasting experience at their beautifully renovated cellar door tasting bar. Here, Guests have the chance to sample wines from their current selection and fully appreciate the fruits of Nautilus Estate's labours of love.
