Though it is safe to say that New Zealand is best known for, and indeed dominate the UK Sauvignon Blanc market, in recent years producers such as Nautilus Estate have been pursuing the introduction of lesser-known grape varieties. The hope for many was to flip the market on its head, much like they did in the 80s with the boom of the aforementioned Sauvignon Blanc.
During this period in the 80s there were around 80 wineries in the country, now there are over 700 with an increasing number diversifying their production & now there really are some fantastic wines being made outside of the ‘norm’.

Saturday 3rd July we are hosting a wine tasting focusing on pioneering producer Nautilus Estate, who are based in the world famous region of Marlborough at the north-eastern tip of the South Island. They strive to make perfectly balanced & proportioned wines, paying homage to their ‘Nautilus shell’ logo – which has been admired since the ancient Greeks for its mathematically perfect shape.

A small family-owned estate established in 1985, Nautilus are pushing the boundaries & aren’t afraid to deviate from the crowd. Instead of focusing on mass-producing Sauvignon Blanc (they do make some), they have strived to focus on mastering the complex & challenging Pinot Noir grape as well as experimenting with non-indigenous grapes, such as Albarino, Pinot Gris & Gruner Veltliner. Pinot Noir is their second largest grown variety, & they have two dedicated vineyards to the grape.
Nautilus make a huge variety of wines ranging from regional blends to single vineyard wines, from both the Wairau & Awatere Valleys, which we will be sampling a selection of.

We will of course be trying their ‘The Paper’ Sauvignon Blanc, which has been designed to go against the grain style wise of what many expect Sauvignon Blanc from the region to be, along with four other wines (detailed below).

Join us on Saturday 3rd July at 8pm to explore the diversification & changing landscape of New Zealand wine from the perspective of this pioneering estate & maybe discover a world outside of Savvy B!

Spaces are limited & the wines will be accompanied, as ever with cheese & other tasty nibbles.

Full list of wines to be shown as follows (Subject to Change):

‘The Paper’ Sauvignon Blanc
Albarino
Pinot Gris
Chardonnay
‘Awatere’ Pinot Noir

As always with our tastings this will be a pretty informal affair with the emphasis on enjoyment of the evening & trying something new. We will be serving additional nibbles to go along with the wines & discounts will be offered on the night for any orders/purchases made.
