Winemaker Notes

Nautilus Estate produces serious Sauvignon Blanc, with site selection offering complex and age-worthy wines. Low yields give intense flavors and palate length, and lees-aging contributes creamy palate weight.
The high acidity and fresh flavors pair well with a wide range of seafood and vegetarian dishes. The flavor intensity can stand up to some chilli and the herb notes in the wine compliment Thai ingredients such as basil or lemongrass.

About Nautilus Estate

At Nautilus we like to keep things simple so we have a small (and friendly!) team. A small team means everyone can be fully involved in the winemaking from start to finish. It also means Clive, our winemaker, can spend his time in the winery making wine rather than managing a large team of people. It is a pretty hands-on approach.Great winery facilities mean that we can pick our grapes when they are ripe rather than being governed by logistics and we have a great deal of control over things like the amount of extraction (the colour and flavour) we get out of the grape skins.Family ownership means we have the benefit of generations of experience through the highs and lows of wine-growing – our owner Robert Hill Smith is a fifth-generation vigneron – and also means that we take a long-term, cautious approach. We only make a change if we are really, really convinced it adds to the quality of what we do.This philosophy is shared by our ‘brothers and sisters’ in the Family of Twelve. This is a group of 12 family-owned wineries that represents a selection of great wines from each of NZ’s winegrowing regions. We are extremely proud to be part of this group and enjoy sharing ideas and time with our extended family!
