Experience Nautilus Single Vineyard Pinot Noir (3 pack)

Nautilus has been one of the leading producers of Pinot Noir in Marlborough since crafting its first Pinot Noir in 1997. In more recent times, a growing appreciation has developed amongst producers and buyers alike for the different sub-regional characters of Pinot Noir from Marlborough. Sites at Nautilus are now a minimum of fifteen years old and vintages are only produced in years where Nautilus feel they excel.

About Nautilus Estate

Nautilus Estate

Nautilus Estate, established in 1985, is a small, family-owned winery in Marlborough. It is one of the few in the region that has remained under the same family ownership for over thirty vintages. Winemaker Clive Jones joined Nautilus in August 1998e previously having spent six years at Selaks Wines in Auckland before making the change to Nautilus Estate. During his time at Nautilus, Clive has overseen the Nautilus Pinot Noir programme from its inception, including the planting of modern, low yielding, premium Dijon clones and the design of a dedicated, gravity-flow Pinot Noir winery that was built in 2000, and was the first of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere. Clive is equally passionate about the other varietals at Nautilus and designed the Nautilus White Wine Cellar in 2006 with Marlborough’s flagship white varietal, Sauvignon Blanc, along with environmental considerations, firmly in mind. This dedication has been rewarded by numerous accolades and trophies over the years. Visit the Nautilus Estate Website
