Overview

The 2011 growing season was characterised by a warm spring and a good fruit set meant that fruit thinning was required to hit our quality targets.

Our premium Pinot Noir was all picked in an 8 day period that sat nicely between our sparkling and Sauvignon Blanc harvests. This wine is a carefully selected blend from four premium vineyard sites, predominantly from the Southern Valleys sub region.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

We are a small, family-owned winery based in the stunningly beautiful Marlborough region of New Zealand. We aim to craft delicious, food-friendly wines from the clean, cool and diverse valleys of Marlborough.

The striking Nautilus shell - its shape expressing natural beauty and mathematical perfection - is our inspiration to create a collection of expressive, textural, precisely crafted wines.

Our energetic and innovative viticultural and winemaking team takes the approach of blending several different fruit parcels to achieve layers of complexity in the wines, focusing on their texture and mouth-feel. Our state-of-the-art but small-scale winemaking facilities give them the tools to achieve this.

Whilst Nautilus wines can easily be enjoyed on their own, we believe they are even better when paired with delicious food and the philosophy of creating food-friendly wines is paramount for winemaker Clive Jones.
