Selected for the 2023 Appellation Marlborough Wine Collection

Winery notes (2022 Vintage)
"The Paper Nautilus Sauvignon Blanc is a small-batch innovative wine. Released only in exceptional years, it is made from hand-picked Estate grown grapes, fermented and aged in large format French oak for nine months."

5 Stars Michael Cooper (2022 Vintage)
"Named after a paper-thin shell, the 2022 vintage was hand-harvested from estate-grown, mature vines in the heart of the Wairau Valley, and fermented and lees-aged for nine months in large French oak vessels. A tightly structured, very ageworthy wine, it is crisp, dry and vigorous, with concentrated, tropical fruit flavours, gentle seasoned with oak, and a complex, fragrant bouquet. Best drinking 2025+."

Rated Outstanding & 95/100 Cameron Douglas MS, July 2021 (2020 Vintage)
"Complex, refined and pure fruit scented bouquet. Aromas of white blossoms and apple, fine lees and grapefruit, sweet herbs of basil and sage then white peach and a touch of fruit spice. Equally complex and even more pure on the palate – this is a wine of subtly, finesse and charm as much as it is the vibrant core that SB carries from the region. Balanced and well made with a lengthy fine finish. Best drinking from purchase and through 2027."

5 Stars Yvonne Lorkin, September 2021 (2020 Vintage)
"The Paper Nautilus is a limited-edition (300doz) sauvignon is only made only when the positive chi flows in from the East and is a completely different style to their classic version. With fruit sourced from their oldest vineyard, smack bang in the middle of the Wairau Valley, it bursts with lemongrassy, peppery intensity. A word. Pour it into a large, swirlable glass and let this wine open up for a minute or two before you launch in. It requires patience, but you’ll thank me. Handpicked, whole bunch pressed and transferred with some solids into two enormous French oak cuves to ferment for 40 days before a long, 9-month rest on its yeast lees before bottling… Perfectly prickly textures, delicious palate tension, nettles and lime – it’s all here."

96/100 Decanter UK, March 2020 (2019 Vintage)
"Delicate, pure and enticing bouquet of citrus blossoms, apple, minerals, autolysis notes and gentle wood spice suggestions. Equally layered and long on the palate, where the flavours mirror the nose and develop more complexity as the wine relaxes in the glass. Pure fruited with indulgent textures and flavours."

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.
