Widely recognised as one of New Zealand's best quality sparkling wines. Ideal fruit ripeness balanced by a core of structural acidity. Nautilus Cuvée Marlborough is a Pinot Noir dominant blend, dry in style with an exceptional three years ageing on lees in bottle to give it nutty, toasty notes on the nose, and richness and complexity on the palate. A favourite in the local New Zealand market, we have produced this sparkling wine since 1989, and it was included in Michael Cooper’s book 100 Must-Try New Zealand Wines. Made in the traditional method from 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay. It is aged on its lees for three years before being disgorged to develop delicious biscuity toasty flavours.

Wine Marlborough, the local winegrowers’ association, defines Marlborough as having three main sub-regions. Each sub-region has distinctive soils and climatic characteristics. Nautilus draws grapes from specially selected sites in each sub-region in order to harness their diverse flavour components to add layers of complexity into our wines.

The Nautilus Estate vineyards, grower blocks and winery have all been 100% accredited to the pioneering Sustainable Winegrowers New Zealand (SWNZ) programme for a number of years.

Three vineyard sites are managed to produce fruit for Nautilus Cuvee, giving us a range of flavour influences. All grapes are hand picked and whole bunch pressed with only the finest free run juice reserved.
