About: A family owned vineyard Nautilus benefits from generations of experience. Robert Hill Smith owns the winery and is fifth generation. The winery is impressive and allows the freedom of picking and wine making when the grapes are fully ripe without compromise. Marlborough region has three main sub regions, each offering different soils and climatic variations, which Nautilus uses to offer diverse flavours to its wines.

The wineries logo and statement - ‘The mathematically perfect spiral of the Nautilus shell has been admired since ancient Greek times. This shape is found throughout nature: in the growth of seeds on a sunflower head, in the air movement of a cyclone, or in the spiral through which a hawk flies towards its prey. This natural balance and proportion is something we seek to express in our wines.’

Marlborough on the Northeastern corner of South Island is the best known wine region for New Zealand famed for many years for Sauvignon Blanc. However in recent years many wineries have diversified to offer a more extensive range. Nautilus have always been unique in their approach and have not only made original wines, but those considered of high quality. The region is sheltered from Westerly winds and has a cool maritime climate. Like Nelson, it shares very long sunshine hours, cool nights and sunny days.

This is a limited edition, single vineyard wine. The Spanish grape variety grows well in this region. The wine is produced in stainless steel tanks and undergoes a short maturation on yeast lees prior to bottling.

Tasting Notes:  Aromas of fresh peaches, white blossom, honeysuckle and ripe citrus follow through to a fresh zingy and fleshy flavours offering ripe tropical fruits in a subtle way.
