This is a “serious” style of Sauvignon Blanc, designed to complement food rather than overpower it and to develop in bottle. Nautilus Sauvignon Blanc frequently stands out in tastings of aged or back vintage Marlborough Sauvignons.

The wine is dry and medium-weight. Less assertive on the nose than some, this wine builds through the palate with great fruit complexity and concentration, culminating in a delicious, lingering finish.

Expert Reviews

"This is a fine example of restraint and balance. The herbaceous aromatics and flavours are lifted but not noisy; the acidity has definition but doesn’t cut too deeply. “A delightful, delicate glass of wine,” Four stars - John Belsham." Cuisine, January 2013

Winery Tasting Notes


The Nautilus Sauvignon Blanc 2012 is intensely aromatic and complex on the nose displaying multi-layered characters of fresh basil, mint and coriander with subtle notes of mandarin peel.


A mouth-watering yet smoothly integrated palate reveals notes of passion fruit, papaya and a strong textural component.


Delicious upon release, this wine will improve for 3-5 years post vintage.

Food Matching

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.
