Event description

Description

Please join us for a wonderful tasting with Clive Jones, winemaker at Nautilus Wines in Marlborough, New Zealand. Founded in 1985 (early days for New Zealand wines!), Nautilus is considered one of the benchmark producers in the country, with sustainably estate-grown wines that showcase Marlborough's sunny yet cool climate and distinctive soils. In addition to producing the two grapes most associated with the region - Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir - Nautilus also crafts a few other lesser-grown grapes, with impressive results. We'll taste the Grüner and their sparkling in this tasting - it should be a fun one!

Why the name Nautilus? From their web site: "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." It's a great analogy, and after you taste the wines, we think you'll agree that they've succeeded!

The wines will be:

  • Nautilus Estate NV Brut Cuvee, Marlborough New Zealand ($34.95)
  • Nautilus Estate 2018 Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough New Zealand ($16.95)
  • Nautilus Estate 2015 Grüner Veltliner, Marlborough New Zealand ($28.95)
  • Nautilus Estate 2013 Pinot Noir, Marlborough New Zealand ($31.95)
  • Nautilus Estate 2015 "Clay Hills" Pinot Noir, Marlborough New Zealand ($49.95)

This is a casual drop-in tasting, so stop in any time between 5 - 7 p.m. to meet and talk with Clive and enjoy some stunning NZ wines!
